Connections that make a difference

We hear a lot these days about connecting. Today, social media has raised the art of connecting to new levels - but does this represent progress?


Back in the '50's when neighbors chatted over the clothesline in the backyard, reaching out and sharing tales of their daily lives, hopes and fears, they often related one-on-one in a more than superficial way.


Today, we have hundreds, even thousands of 'friends' and followers on Facebook and Twitter…

DAWG Talk: A New Year...



A new year is upon us. It’s an exciting time. It’s a time of closure and new beginnings. It’s a time for introspection and reflection. It’s a time to look ahead.



A lot of things happen over the course of a year. While we’re in the throes of all that activity, it’s hard to pull back and fairly assess what’s going on. Over time, we gain valuable perspective.



We are in a fortuitous position when we have the ability to look… Continue

What does your restaurant opening say about you?

I went to a restaurant 'opening' the other night at Bella Luna/Milky Way, a long-time favorite neighborhood place in Jamaica Plain, a Boston neighborhood that moved into a new space.



It turned out to be totally different from any opening I’ve maybe ever been to before and led me to wonder, what do restaurant openings say about the restaurant?



Many openings are big, dressed-up occasions full of friends of the owners, local foodies and press. They’re very social but usually… Continue

A View From NRA

Greetings from the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago! How cool that I get to blog from the show to my FOHBOH friends, many of whom, I know, are attending. In fact, FOHBOH is hosting its second annual gathering at the Regal Beagle later tonight and I'm looking forward to meeting some members of the community offline.



At the show this year, much talk has centered on social media, just like is happening practically everywhere else. I think we'd all agree that no one has… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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."
