Chris Butler commented on Chris Leo's blog post 3 Ways To Increase Revenues Using SMS (Text Message) Marketing In Your Restaurant
"Chris, I totally understand we are discussing this within an 'opt-in' situation, but what is acceptable after opt-in can be fuzzy in the mind of the guest. I don't think that they think of opt-in for marketing the same way…"

Chris Butler commented on Jon Rock's blog post Mobile App vs. Mobile Website: Which is Best for Restaurants?
"Jon, I would probably recommend those operators update their site anyways. To create (or update a site) to be mobile friendly by today's standards just means you need to write HTML4/5 website. If the site is still using lots of flash or XHTML…"

Chris Butler commented on Jon Rock's blog post Mobile App vs. Mobile Website: Which is Best for Restaurants?
"Totally agree, the website is much more important. I would even go further and say that a simple regular website is most important. If you build something without flash, has address/phone number copyable/everywhere, menu not in PDF, menu updated,…"

Chris Butler commented on Michele Wagaman's blog post One New Message: "Your Table is Now Ready!"
"Though it feels very clunky to me, if you are just using a mobile phone by the host stand that is one thing since you need a SMS plan for the phone... Also, if you are using a service that integrates text messaging into the host workflow it will…"

"Another important thought on getting into hospitality technology: stage (aka shadow or 'work for free') in the job role that is affected most by your service. The 'lean development' movement in technology tells you to get out of…"

TED TALKS VIDEO

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 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.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

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?
