Outside the boxiness

Posted on: April 23, 2019

It is one thing to advocate that we think outside the box, it is entirely another to operate outside it.

But operating outside the box does not require a total rejection of existing ideas. In the example above, thinking outside the box is operating outside the boxiness of the old design.

The improvements are that the newer map is more pleasant to the eye, easier to read, and more geographically accurate.

One might start with spreadsheet thinking and policy making, but one should not end with it unless one desires tables and charts. People and their problems are curvy, nuanced, and messy. Sometimes it does not take much to incorporate that.
