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: 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.
