This reminds me of an occasion when I bumped into a old friend in Brunswick
St Fitzroy - over coffee I noticed his shopping list. The top few items

Subject: [csaa-forum] wants/needs
Just been reading some writing on public broadcasting, and I'm fascinated
by the durability of the 'want/need' binary in critical thinking (as in
'commercial culture encourages people to buy things they think they want,
not what they really need'). I'm interested in what we currently think are
real needs, and what are merely wants, in twenty first century Australia.
If anyone has a few spare seconds, would you mind putting 'need' or 'want'
next to the ten items on this list, and emailing it to me at
a.mckee at qut.edu.au?
Love youse all
