Is Customer Service Gone?

I went to a fast food chain for dinner with my six year old son this evening, and for legality purposes, the name of the restaurant will be withheld. My son found a table in the dining room next to the TV- unfortunately it was playing some eerie TV show about haunted houses, and because I did not want my son to be exposed to that type of show, I asked the Cashier personnel over the counter if she could change the channel. She stated she wouldn't change it because they keep it only on one…See More

How Being “Green” Can Save You Green…And Give You a Warm and Fuzzy Feeling at the Same Time

Posted on August 17, 2010 at 9:52pm 0 Comments

For the last few years, you may have heard several buzzwords that refer to being “green”, or being socially and environmentally conscious, such as sustainability, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Engineering Design), and

of course, “green”. But these terms are fast becoming a part of main stream society.

And for very good reason. People are realizing that Mother Earth does not have

an unlimited amount of natural resources, and we are…

What's the Benefit of Innovation Anyways?

Posted on August 9, 2010 at 1:31pm 1 Comment

Today was a full day of meetings. It started at 8am and lasted until 5pm. For some, this isn't a big deal. I used to do this

market. In my own humble and professional opinion, the products that will be…

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 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.

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?
