Designing Against the Status Quo

Ellie Harmon, Matthias Korn, Ann Light, Amy Voida
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM Conference Companion Publication on Designing Interactive Systems - DIS '16 Companion  
In contrast to user-centered design, we look for ways to design against the status quo, working to thwart the routines, habits, and norms of a social life that is inequitable and unsustainable.  ...  Yet despite micro-disruptions to specific practices, new computing tools often fall short, reinforcing the status quo in new material forms.  ...  work to design against the status quo.  ...

Ratifiable Mechanisms: Learning from Disagreement

Peter C. Cramton, Thomas R. Palfrey
1995 Games and Economic Behavior  
In a mechanism design problem, participation constraints require that all types prefer the proposed mechanism to some status quo.  ...  If equilibrium play in the status quo mechanism depends on the players' beliefs, then the inference drawn if someone objects to the proposed mechanism may alter the participation constraints.  ...  We are grateful to the National Science Foundation for financial support. The first author thanks the Hoover institution of Stanford University for a most enjoyable year as a National Fellow.  ...

Lessons from International Multi‐Option Referendum Experiences

Charlotte C. L. Wagenaar
2020 Political quarterly (London. 1930. Print)  
It then analyses the variety in ballot design in terms of questions posed and voting methods applied.  ...  Drawing on the experiences of multi-option referendums, the article concludes with lessons that can be learned in relation to initiating and designing these referendums.  ...  The New Zealand case was different, as it only offered change options (five flag designs). The most popular flag design competed against the status quo flag in a later run-off stage.  ...

The role of system-justification motivation, group status and system threat in directing support for hate crimes legislation

Robyn K. Mallett, Jeffrey R. Huntsinger, Janet K. Swim
2011 Journal of Experimental Social Psychology  
The status of the group targeted, perceptions of hate crimes as representative of the status quo, and temporarily enhanced feelings of system threat moderate this relation (Studies 2-4).  ...  Attitudes are unaffected when high-status groups are targeted.  ...  That is, system-justification motivation should be negatively related to support for policies designed to address hate crimes against low-status groups.  ...

Political resource allocation, controlled agendas, and the status quo

Thomas Romer, Howard Rosenthal
1978 Public Choice  
Let B'(q'o) C A' designate the set of proposals voter i approves when status quo is qi0 and B'(q) C_ A' designate the set of proposals approved when the status quo is some different point qi.  ...  No expenditure greater than the status quo would be preferred to the status quo by a simple majority of voters, and hence there is no expenditure viable against the status quo. B.  ...

The [Everyday] Future by Design

Heather McKinnon
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM Conference Companion Publication on Designing Interactive Systems - DIS '16 Companion  
It then discusses open opportunities for design, which surround dismissing status quo thinking in order to re-envision future ways of being.  ...  This position paper fuses together several conceptual elements concerning sustainability and the future of design.  ...  Open Opportunities for Design Futures In this light, design in the context of sustainability should contain qualities that are adaptable to change, forward-thinking, against the status quo and should encompass  ...

The Constrained Instability of Majority Rule: Experiments on the Robustness of the Uncovered Set

William T. Bianco, Michael S. Lynch, Gary J. Miller, Itai Sened
2008 Political Analysis  
The results support the theoretic appeal of the uncovered set. Outcomes overwhelmingly lie in or near the uncovered set. Furthermore, when preferences shift, outcomes track the uncovered set.  ...  Although outcomes tend to occur within the uncovered set, they are not necessarily stable; majority dominance relationships still produce instability, albeit constrained by the uncovered set.  ...  Funding National Science Foundation (NSF grant # SES 0241778); the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy.  ...

They Live and They Make Consumer Law a Poor Instrument of Distributive Justice

Szymon Osmola

It appeals to the so-called status quo argument, according to which interpreting consumer law as an instrument of distributive justice may entrench the current, unjust state of affairs, and therefore compound  ...  Even though consumer contract law concerns voluntary agreements between private parties, it is often considered to be an instrument of the principle of distributive justice, according to which the design  ...  Third, the status quo argument should not be treated as an argument against consumer protection as such.  ...

Defending or Challenging the Status Quo: Position Effects on Biased Intergroup Perceptions

Emma A. Bäck, Torun Lindholm
2014 Journal of Social and Political Psychology  
The default ideological position is status quo maintaining, and challenging the status quo is associated with increased efforts and risks. Nonetheless, some people choose to challenge the status quo.  ...  Therefore, to challenge the status quo should imply a strong belief in one's position as the correct one, and thus efforts may be undertaken to undermine the position of others.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank the three anonymous reviewers for their insightful comments and suggestions on how to improve the manuscript.  ...

The politics of zero-sum thinking: The relationship between political ideology and the belief that life is a zero-sum game

Shai Davidai, Martino Ongis
2019 Science Advances  
Whereas conservatives exhibit zero-sum thinking when the status quo is challenged, liberals do so when the status quo is being upheld.  ...  Consequently, conservatives view social inequalities—where the status quo is frequently challenged—as zero-sum, but liberals view economic inequalities—where the status quo has remained relatively unchallenged  ...  the status quo is being upheld.  ...
