I'm currently teaching a college course looking at group wisdom and influence. As a classroom exercise, we tackled this challenge, and one of the ideas we came up with was similar to yours: how can we find a way to make ugly foods more saleable? The idea of playing with price points is great -- one other idea we had regarding this idea was how we could combine this with branding/advertising. What kind of campaign could we create in order to make buying "ugly" foods not only good from an environmental or budgeting standpoint, but also trendy?
Thank you for this link Bahenda. This article really highlights how much of a grey area there is right now. If you have any thoughts on how this "digital curation" could be implemented (or anything else related to this) please let me know!
Yes absolutely! That's such a great point about it being just as exciting to visit other "places" and "time periods" as it would be to find someone else who has chosen the same world. What I love about this is that it allows both the possibility for active interaction and relationship-building (and the conversation starter is already there!), and the option of simply being in the same space or listening to the same music and feeling some sort of bond with another person even if you don't speak at all.
Many of the posted ideas focus on friends and family, which makes a lot of sense. I think your idea is so great because it sets up possibilities for comfort and connection even when friends and family cannot be there.
