It seems to me that a bottom line is networked design. This means that any given design should matter for the development of other designed processes or artifacts. This doesn't necessarily mean that all design with be necessarily "positive." Take design for debate as an example. Surely it's context sensitive. By focusing the efforts of design on the relational, non-linear aspects of society and culture, perhaps the design that will unfold will be more robust, thoughtful and relevant across a wider range of contexts.
