Request for input: Web Foundation’s project on deceptive and trusted design

This is a forward that I thought people would be interested in (apologies for the Google link):

tldr: Are you working on or have you see interesting work on “deceptive design” or “dark patterns”? Are there related efforts happening in your community? We’d love to hear about it!

I’m reaching out because we have embarked on an exciting new project with the Web Foundation on tackling deceptive design (or “Dark Patterns”) and moving towards trusted design patterns. This effort is a part of the Web Foundation’s Tech Policy Design Lab, which brings together companies, governments, and civil society — using a human-centered approach — to better understand the many challenges around deceptive design and co-create policy solutions that promote trusted design patterns. You can learn more via the project brief https://drive.google.com/file/d/1B441cr1UMZcMiuixsf17WvUNpJ0Io8ky/view?usp=sharing and website https://techlab.webfoundation.org/deceptive-design/overview.

[Request] We are currently working on identifying resources, research, organizations and people who are working in this space or on these issues to include in the project. If you have work we should know about or people you think we should connect with, we’d love to hear from you. We are particularly interested to connect with folks working outside the US, EU & UK. Thank you in advance, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards, Georgia & SimSec Team & 3x3.co Team
