Ray, just joined FohBoh. My company just launched a business intelligence/POS backup application into the restaurant industry. We are looking for feedback on the direction we have taken, and would like your participation in a 90 day pilot program. We compliment most POS systems, and are looking for a few feedback and expert opinions. If you have 15 minutes, I would like to give you an overview of how we can help uncover trends and patterns in your transaction data not readily available through POS reporting. Please take a look at the 40 second video, and if you are interested, let me know a good day and time to speak.

Good evening Ray,
It was a great experience meeting with you earlier today and discussing the emerging mobile food marketplace. I learned alot from the encounter and look forward to some feedback in the coming days. A few thoughts that didn't come to mind during our discussions:
1. The ultimate goal is to define and lead the mobile food marketplace.
2. Passion and energy fuel success.
3. Deliver exceptional service, create positive interactions and greet guests with a smile.
4. Improve continuously.
5. Teamwork.

Thanks again,

Ray, finally I stepped into FohBoh. You invited me nearly two years ago. Sales have been steady and up for a few locations through these past months. Lost one location - LL would not yield asking for big hike in rents. We shut - now they called back? H-m-m-m.

Maybe we can catch up again when you're on this side of the Sierras. Steve

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?

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
