Re: Why Are Restaurant Operators Such a Hard Sell?

Posted on March 11, 2010 at 7:24am 4 Comments

I just read Michael's post called "Why Are Restaurant Operators Such a Hard Sell?" He was talking about how resistant restaurant operators are to adopt new technology and processes.



That really got me thinking about the very question he asked. Why is it that way? I have a theory, let me know what you think.

Are you a social media slave?

Posted on October 26, 2009 at 9:04am 1 Comment

Miley Cyrus left Twitter because she felt like a social media slave and I certainly felt like one last week as my to do list kept bugging me that I haven't blogged in a while.



No one ever said it was easy to do this social media thing, but I think it's especially challenging for businesses. I try to blog once a week. If I have ideas during the week, I just pop them into a folder and then when "blogging… Continue

Doing the "right" thing (and getting fired for it)

Posted on August 31, 2009 at 8:14am 4 Comments

Operating a business is challenging. I've managed software companies and restaurants and there was never a shortage of difficult decisions to make. I want to share a story about a choice I made, how it cost me my job, and how I was rewarded for it.



I was managing a restaurant near Rockefeller Center in New York City many years ago. It was the first week of December and business was crazy (as it always is that time of year). The owner came in to visit and dropped a bombshell on me. He… Continue

Where do parents take their kids to eat?

Posted on August 19, 2009 at 7:16am 6 Comments

USA Today published an article yesterday about how IHOP and other restaurants are trying to lure in parents by letting kids eat free. Now this is not a discussion about the power of free. It's just a look at dining from a parent's perspective.

Is Pizza Hut's iPhone app a success?

Posted on August 4, 2009 at 7:37am 3 Comments

The Pizza Hut iPhone app has been downloaded over 100,000 times. What does this mean for them? How will it affect their sales? How do I get an app for my restaurant? These are the questions that come to mind.



Well first things first. It's a great looking app. The design team that put it together did an excellent job. It's sexy, fun, and functional.



So what does a great looking app get you? Well, it gets you 100,000 downloads.… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

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.
