I LOVE Our Industry!

B. Mark Paul, senior vice president for investments with UBS Financial Services Inc. and the Carrigan•Paul•Ferguson Group, in Dallas:
"My greatest memory of Norman (Brinker) was when I was roughly 14 years old working with my mother and father in our first franchised/joint ventured Steak & Ale in Maitland, Fla.
There was about to be a major meeting of managers in Dallas. At that time, there were only 13 units in the country. I was sure I wanted to go and basically told my father that I had spoken with Harold Deem, one of Norman's original partners, and he said that I could come.
For whatever reason, my father took my word for it and said, 'you’re going.’ I had the greatest experience of my young career in those sessions that were scheduled, with Norman mainly leading the charge. That was, until my father and Harold confronted me regarding the scam I had run to get out there. I lived through that and would have done it all over again, if I could have!
The next thing I know, Norman is in Orlando to visit our restaurant and comes into the unit with a perfectly sized double-breasted red suit coat with the Steak & Ale patch for me to wear while running the floor and said, 'If you are going to do this job, you are going to need to look the part!'
My parents took some time to bring me down to earth! I will never forget the thoughtfulness that this represented and the impact that had on me. My 17 years with Steak & Ale were certainly some of the best in my life."

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 and TED Fellow 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: 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?
