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.

Hey Mark your added, hows the weather in Boston? I have a lot of family up there!

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: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

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?
