DrinkCraftBeer.com: Mildly obsessed, so you don't have to be.
I started DrinkCraftBeer.com in the beginning of 2006 with my Co-Founder to advance the state of Craft Beer in our country and to enhance it's acceptance in the eyes of the mainstream consumer. Different from many beer sites that focus on the more extreme beer enthusiast, out target is the casual drinker who has a taste for better food and drink. Our goal is to push craft beer as a desirable accompaniment to food or by itself, instead of just a game day swill.
We do regular beer tastings in the Boston area at finer liquor stores, and work with local companies to provide beer pairing events. For example, in February 2008 we worked with local Somerville chocolate makers Taza to pair craft beer with their offerings. Our event drew an estimated 125 people and sold hundreds of dollars in merchandise in 2 hours.
Both Founders of DrinkCraftBeer.com come from a marketing background, having worked in both internet and event marketing for years.

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.

Through private companies, he says, governments are buying technology with the capacity to break into computers, steal documents and monitor activity — without detection.
