Chicken and Egg

I began my 'lazy Sunday' with a thought scribbled on a Post-It note that has been nagging at me for over a week:
"Chicken and Egg: Symbiotic Shaping of App Development — the relationship between technological and societal demands is one of mutual shaping."
Shared on Twitter for the world to ponder, I quietly am all too aware that venturing down the rabbit hole of app design once more presents challenges.
For example, design is a large component of technology. The color choices, interface, shapes, features, extensions, exclusions and more. Yet there are other factors not as obvious; policies, back-end functionality, pricing and the dreaded "fine print".
