Restaurant Marketing & Super Bowl: Was That Domino's or Pizza Hut? Coke or Pepsi?

Quickly approaching a week after the Super Bowl, how many of those 52 plus ads can you remember? I wrote about why Super Bowl ads are a waste of money in my ad agency business blog.You may remember the "Farmer" ad (it was great!) but what pickup truck was that for?The problem is that with all the creativity - kids, babies, animals, nerds, comedians ... no one's running out to Best Buy (who…See More

Suing Subway For The Short Footlong? Get A Life!

So someone pointed out that Subway's Footlongs aren't really a foot long. They're sometimes a tad shorter, as much as an inch short. And because of that, people are suing this great chain?I say, "get a life." Much like McDonald's Quarter Pounder starts out at a quarter pound of uncooked meat, the cooking process decreases the weight of the burger, Subway's unbaked buns are twelve inches, but decrease in size due to the baking process.…See More

Hi Joel,

I tried to access your website, but I think you misspelled it on your profile page. There should be an 'e' between the 'k' and the 't' for your url.

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.
