It seems to me like playgrounds should be turned into a platform.
The platform inventor would invent the platform of electronifying
and - to add insult to injury - making accessible to people
adults with disabilities, playgrounds. Then the platform inventor a
or Apple, could focus on fighting the
and nonprofits for space, eventually taking over and completely
eliminating first open space and eventually nature, and thus
providing a fertile environment for developers of individual types
playground equipment ie monkey bars and plastic xylophones, to
compete with each other to provide the most crazy excellent stuff
possible. You could even have gigantic sponsorship banners around
the edges of the playground: "GOOGLE, GOODYEAR, EXXON".
Playground equipment, thus electronified, could pay for itself by
measuring and then sending back to at first just the companies but
eventually the NSA, data from the novel ways of interacting that
participants are coming up with in the process of interacting with
the environment. Innovation playground.
||When I think of a platform in the context of
playground, I think of something to stand on. What
is "the platform of electrifying"?
|| It seems like you might be proposing a theme park.
