Annotated Bibliography of Clark Miller and Claire Gordon’s Article ” Disabled by Design” : Mario Delva and Avery Johnson

Miller, Clark, and Claire Gordon. “How a Lack of Imagination in Technological Design Harms the Disabled.” Slate.com. N.p., 26 Feb. 2015. Web. 09 Feb. 2016. Clark Miller Claire Gordon Clark Miller, an “associate director of the Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes at Arizona State University,” and Claire Gordon, “a senior research fellow in the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education,” explains how “current engineering design imagination and practice routinely exclude a variety of different kind of bodies, including but not limiting to people with disabilities” ( Miller and Gordon par. 6). One example of limitation is how the “Black Hawk” helicopter are not meant for “more than one-third of females soldiers and almost three-quarters soldiers” because they do ” not have the right size shape or shape body” ( Miller and Gordon par. 5). It was a good example until Miller and Gordon made a statement that the Black Hawk design could fit “90 percent of Army Pilots” but not fit “90 percent of the U.S. population” ( Miller and Gordon par. 5). The comparison was irrelevant. Black Hawk The purpose of this article was to promote a change for engineers to develop technology that can expand the amount of users leaving no one behind. The intended audience were engineers and designers. I don’t find this article too useful because the amount of evidence to support the author’s claim was not...
