"Designing Consent" is a talk about how design and UI can be used to stymy and mitigate online harassment, specifically within social networks. What does digital consent look like in a conversations and how do we create it? There are a lot of affordances real life conversations give users to leaving or joining a conversation and initiating social interaction. What would social networks look like if they weren't designed to heighten usability but to heighten safety while still maintaining the characteristics and traits of that social network. What can design do to start solving harassment problems without changing the identity of the platform?
