Very interested to know if anyone is familiar with Gobza and, if so, what your experience is?  Based on limited research to date, Gobza appears to be a new alternative to Groupon and Living Social…Continue

Online Ordering for Produce, Products & Menu Supplies

Researching different online/web based systems for ordering produce and other menu items from suppliers.  A lot of the systems I have found seem to be proprietary to a particular distributor, supplier or consortium.  While any recommendations, even for a proprietary system woudl be appreciated, I'm particularly interested in systems where I can compare produce and products from different distributors, suppliers and manufacturers.  Any advice?  Many thanks.See More

Ha!!  I was one of the first 500 members!!  I don't use it that much now.  When they first started up, they got really uptight if you talked about your business on here cuz they wanted ppl to buy banner ads.  I loaded up my profile with anchor links back to my website.  I have been talking to folks about Gobza.  Kelly and I will talk to Karen (exec director - GRA) next week.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

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.
