First, thanks for joining FohBoh and please invite others that may add value and find value. I would appreciate that.
Regarding NDA's and consultants in the restaurant industry. Any consultant in any industry should be used to signing non disclosures by now. Consultants are service providers and as such, are generally not competitive so it shouldn't be a problem. Having said that, many consultants, including myself, balance principal activities (investment) with agency business (consulting) so signing NDA's for me and my firm is sometimes problematic.
You are correct, in tech it's almost automatic because in many cases there is IP to protect. In the restaurant industry, show me an original idea and the next day there are 10 competitors. So the long answer is ask and try to get the NDA signed so there is no issue. But the reality is, that in the restaurant industry, it's just not as common.
Where I would insist on an NDA/non-circumvent agreement is with key employees. if you need a form, let me know.

This store will be the first of four to be operated by Starbucks across Disney properties in the United States and will serve as a destination for guests looking to relax and recharge as part of their visit.

While working with kids who have trouble speaking, Ajit Narayanan sketched out a way to think about language in pictures, to relate words and concepts in "maps." The idea now powers an app that helps nonverbal people communicate, and the big idea behind it, a language concept called FreeSpeech, has exciting potential.
Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
Privacy researcher Christopher Soghoian sees the landscape of government surveillance shifting beneath our feet, as an industry grows to support monitoring programs. Through private companies, he says, governments are buying technology with the capacity to break into computers, steal documents and monitor activity — without detection. This TED Fellow gives an unsettling look at what's to come.
