GOOD, increasingly my favourite place on the internet, recently held an online debate about the future of food. They interviewed a range of thinkers on different aspects of the subject, and encouraged readers to join in the conversation too. I’m very much into food design, and the future of food is an interesting concept (see this blog post too). There are few things more basic to being human than eating, and how we do it/why we do it/who we do it with are some of the most revealing sociological indicators we have as a culture.
Some links, then, so that you can enjoy the goodness too:

- Paola Antonelli, design curator of MOMA, expands on her love of humble masterpieces (see this exhibition page for clarity)
- The New York Times explains, in a beautiful diagram and clear text, how changing a school lunch line can change kids’ behaviour for their own nutritional benefit
- How to change what people eat through their DNA, as explained by Australia’s Science Alert
