I wanted to write a little bit about the television set.
Over the years, the basic design of televisions has changed quite dramatically, whilst staying the same: a screen in a box. There are knobs to turn, or buttons to push, maybe a remote control, and the screen has got less bulbous over the years. Largely, it is a screen in a box.
I wanted to quickly write up a little thought that cropped up during a conversation last night. Skirting around behavioural economics and nudging, and whether it is something governments should really be doing, I found myself frustrated that it isn’t even done very well by commercial outlets.
