Hello Restaurant Guy

Getting the word out that you need VC for a start up is difficult. I think a classified ad in a trade newspaper may help you. That was a shameless plug for my newspapers, but I'm not sorry for it. We cover Florida and Texas each month and as you know they are among the top four states for foodservice and people investing in restaurants. Lots of money from retiement and business investments. Please visit to view an example of the publications. If I can be of any help contact me at

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.
