I was recently sent this update from UC Berkeley and Indiana University, and thought I would pass it along. I have never had a brush with the "Dark Side" of crafting they describe here. Have you?
Do you sew clothes, print posters, or shop for craft supplies only to realize your craft has negative effects, e.g., on the consumer or society at-large, morally, socially, and/or legally? Do you see a “dark side” to craft? If so, UC Berkeley and Indiana University researchers conducting a research project on handcraft and computing would love to talk to you. We will conduct interviews by instant message, email, phone, or in person within the next few months.
To help us with our research, please email Daniela at email@example.com, Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Shaowen at email@example.com.
