Etsy CTO On Its Conservatively Crafty Tech Philosophy

Etsy CTO Kellan Elliott-McRea chatting at a table.  The online artisans’ marketplace sells some unique products and has some unusual needs when it comes to IT. The company sets itself apart in a number of ways. Instead of using cloud services like many young organizations, it mostly shuns them preferring to bring as much as possible in-house. Etsy, which recently had a hugely successful IPO, is remarkably conservative in some ways, yet… Read More

Box Breaks Out Of Application Box With New Developer Edition

Graphic explaining Box Developer Edition  Box announced ‘Box Developer Edition‘ at its yearly BoxDev event today. The new approach allows developers to run their own Box “instance” inside of their application — their very own Box, in other words. This turns Box on its head in a sense because instead of running the Box application, and building apps on top of it, you are building something and embedding… Read More


Customer Retention - Listen to them

Today, is the day of the most digitally empowered customers! Your guests/customers don't like the experience at your restaurant, they will actively look out to voice their opinion. If the medium they choose to do so is on the internet forums (like Zomato, Yelp etc), then we have a problem. Negative word-of-mouth. This again leads to the dreadful phenomenon of Customer churn. Which means, you need to spent a lot more on advertising  than to grow your customer base Automatically. So now what?…

Recently The Painted Table expanded to an experimental Bistro partnership.  Taming down our nouvelle style cuisine we made a menu in less than two days while "Restaurant Impossible-ing" the grime coated kitchen.  In two days we went from nothing to full fledged bistro and the discussion I bring to the table is what everyone else thinks of the differences between a line cook and a caterer. During our time in the bistro we sent over each of our Catering Food Warriors to the Bistro to learn how to…

  • 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network...so what are restaurateurs doing about that?
  • When a company pivots, doe they leave their business model behind or, leverage legacy assets?
  • The day after Easter? Watch out for egg salad specials :)
  • The importance of customer feedbacks that will drive insightful actions and measurement of a restaurant performance is ever Increasing.

    A startup called Afterall, has developed a product for just the same.

  • Seems that smarter restuarants win, when they know what their customers really want...basics like good food, good service and a clean, quality environment. Sounds good to us!
  • Internet commerce for restaurants will absolutely make a difference and help define your success in 2015

Drones, wearables, VR: emerging technologies that will change media

Media consumption leans toward frequent check-ins and a desire for a first-person narrative, writes Salon Media Group CEO Cindy Jeffers. Technologies like wearables, drones and virtual reality offer a natural extension for storytelling while delivering on the unique vantage point that users are looking for. While too early to tell how big an impact they will make, some media outlets have already begun to see how these experiments can change the content experience, both as creators and consumers.

More mobile, fewer flash sales: The state of e-commerce

Forrester Research released a new study on the future of e-commerce, and the firm is projecting that the industry will top $300 billion in sales this year and approach $500 billion by 2015. Still, some aspects of e-commerce prove that not everything can live up to the hype, namely shopping on tablets, same-day shipping and flash-sale sites. The brick-and-mortar, surprisingly, has continued to stay relevant. "There’s a bigger risk when opening a store rather than a website, but the reward of the online store is smaller than the physical store," said Sucharita Mulpuru-Kodali, who led the report.

WSJ now has a 40-person video team cranking out 40 videos a day

Like other traditional publishers, The Wall Street Journal is trying to promote digital video viewing on its own site rather than distribute video widely to other platforms that it can't monetize. On the eve of its third NewFronts presentation, the Journal described how it uses interactive video, on-site promotion and three-minute videos to boost engagement. “You can’t conduct Wall Street Journal journalism in 15 to 20 seconds,” the Journal's Andy Regal said.

NYT’s NewFronts pitch: Did we mention the storytelling?

The New York Times kicked off the NewFronts Monday with its pitch to buyers that reinforced its quality-over-quantity message with a focus on its ability to tell stories in video, for the edit and brands alike. New offerings include Robotica, a tech series; and animated financial explainers from DealBook’s Andrew Ross Sorkin. And while its focus is on maximizing views on its own site, the Times is ceding to audience pressure, dipping its toe into YouTube and Facebook-exclusive content.
