"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: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
