The Schedule and the Stream

The schedule has been such a pervasive part of our culture over the last century that it’s hard to imagine a world without it.

Ideas like it are not natural,
but invented, refined, and fought over.


The rise of bots you can talk to, like Alexa and Siri, will take the stream into a purely aural form.


Unlike the schedule,

the stream is not a single, communal experience,

so introducing regulation to ensure diversity within highly personalized,
algorithmically curated streams isn’t an option.
