Posted on May 26, 2013 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

The press is awash with the buzz about the two big portal players getting bigger by merginging together. Of course bloggers and talking heads rattle off eye popping numbers (daily online orders / profitability / immense value and so on) meant to impress the reader and give an impression that life will never be the same again. “Bigger is better” is a “easy to sell” message, which is valuable for press. But bigger is better for who? Haven’t we seen this movie before? Lets see: big banks, big…

Web Strategy: Most Important is Often the Simplest….

Posted on January 24, 2010 at 7:43pm 0 Comments

Online ordering is critical and nothing can over state the importance, particularly if you are interested in catering to the coming generations. Over the last 12-18 months, we have observed a growing number of restaurant operators who find themselves in a sticky situation. Many “Restaurant Operators do not OWN their URL”. This is a disaster and operators need to understand the importance of it, if they are remotely interested in safeguarding their brand and/or existence on the… Continue

Web Strategy: Are you a smart operator in the new world of online orders?

Posted on May 21, 2008 at 12:31pm 0 Comments

Recently an online portal pitched something similar to the following offer:



“Give 20% discount to online orders coming from our portal and we’ll promote your restaurant to 70,000+ of our customers”.



As a restaurant owner, you:



a) Sign-up (what’s there to lose?)

b) Ignore the promotion because you already get PLENTY of orders from the portal

c) Ignore the promotion because you get VERY FEW orders from the portal

d) Wonder what the right… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
