Bar/restaurant advertising (out-of-home)

Posted on March 14, 2008 at 6:56am 0 Comments

The growing interest in out-of-home advertising coupled with increases in technology strike me as a good combination for fast growth and innovative marketing opportunities.



I'm not sure the technology is all the way there, but distribution is getting more robust and those businesses that figure out how to add meaningful content that engage diners and drinkers will be on to something.…

My partner, Richard Dolby, who died 2 years ago, and I moved here in '81 when it opened for residential use and bought in 1991. It's wonderful - very peaceful but close and accessible to the city. You probably know The Castle Group too - I've known Hilary for a long time.

I appreciate your reasons. But aren't all those things just as easily available through the main board?

This is one of two groups I belong to that use this system, and I don't understand what the "friends" think does, on either of them, that's so special.

Another thing that confuses me is the groups. I understand their purpose---to provide a place where like-minded people can get together. But most of the time they languish. People sign up, but never post anything. So what's the point?

Take the Food & Beverage Media group, for instance. 14 members. And virtually no activity. The PR group, proportionately, is even worse. 30 members, and, what? Two threads?

Is a puzzlement.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
