"I think what he meant was that they would see the app icon, not necessarily constant updates (which would be incredibly annoying, as you pointed out)"

Andrew Baber replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"From what I understand most POS systems can allow a simple XML feed as an order input (assuming the menus are properly aligned). I've been speaking with MetroORDER and SalesVu on this front and it seems doable. Some of the awesome perks of a…"

"Do you find that restaurants are more interested in the advertising that a mobile app brings or the potential for increased orders? I'm curious as to why you aren't able to order with the app itself. While it is super useful to have a…"

Welcome Andrew,
Thanks for joining FohBoh. Let's see if we can connect regarding potential business development. I'm involved with mobile food, farm to table initiatives and community shellfish farms. Any chance some of your catering could incorporate mobile oyster bars? The general concept involves freshly harvested oysters from Tomales Bay, transported to a venue within hours of harvest and expertly shucked for the enjoyment of patrons. Let me know?

Hi Andrew,

What brings you to FohBoh? I suggest that you join a couple of groups that relate to your catering business, and connect with other like-minded FohBoh members. In fact, you and Luc Chamberland may have something in common...he also operates a SF-based food business.

Stay connected. Use this community, and contact me anytime.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
