  4. THE PRODUCT/USER DISCONNECTION
  5. The product shadow DISCONNECTION 1
  6. A business at its core is a person helping another person.
  7. To make that help scale we added layers: software.
  8. That same software casts a shadow hiding the users.
  9. Slowly, naturally, we consider the software as the end goal.
  10. Design for Functions Design for Humans
  11. The elastic user DISCONNECTION 2
  12. user
  13. user user

  15. Implicit users Explicit users
