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 Chris Leo's blog post 3 Ways To Increase Revenues Using SMS (Text Message) Marketing In Your Restaurant
"The third question should be 'how do I do this without annoying them'? :-) Personally, there are very few times I have not been annoyed by unsolicited text messages from brands or businesses. Unless the message is something I have…"

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?
"One more important item: ability to make a reservation right from the mobile site as well as being able to add the waitlist (if your host process can handle that). If the guest knows when they will be seated they will be way more likely to put…"

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 Michael L. Atkinson's blog post 10 Food Tech Start-Up Lessons
"Michael, totally agree that figuring out who your customer is a tough question. I think that is why trying to be a customer of your own service (or the one you want to build) is so enlightening. If you wouldn't use it as a customer, why would…"

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…"

Chris Butler commented on Michele Wagaman's blog post One New Message: "Your Table is Now Ready!"
"I have been paged using my phone a few different times with both text messages and phone calls. It is waaaaay better than using the hardware pagers. Not only is it a better experience, but the range is much further: I can actually go do something…"

TED TALKS VIDEO

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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

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.
