Hi - I am sitting WBC at 17 again - this time trying the ricotta pancakes and the free wifi! Kudos on both! Tell them not to nuke the blueberies so much though - I nearly burned my mouth. Service was very friendly and they remembered to upsell me at the register :)
I finally got to one of your stores - and have even been back a second time! I visited the one at 17 and 101 both times. What a great experience - and I was so happy to see the place was hopping both times. The menu items I tried were great - presentation and taste were terrific - service was friendly, display was good. Even the restroom was nice :) I like the flowerpot bread idea and even brought home a loaf. I will surely be back, but wish you were closer. There is a Paradise at Happy Valley and 17 which is very convenient to me, but I have never had a good experience there.

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.
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."
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.)
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.
