Hey everybody. My name is Jessica and I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I am currently a culinary student and I have plans to open my own restaurant with my mom after I graduate and get a few years in the kitchen under my belt. I hope that joining this group will help me to get all the info on the ins and outs of starting your own restaurant. I hope that we can all get to know each other better.

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.
