Thanks for the encouragement; coming from you it means a lot! I'm enjoying your posts, tweets, etc. By the way, have you been following the "discussions" of the NY Times and NRN articles about "foo foo" NY and Hollywood restaurants being forced to loose their attitude and actually be nice to customers?

Amanda - I've been enjoying FohBoh, and I find your content particularly worthwhile. Your unique perspective is so refreshing in this challenging environment. Keep up the great work, Tweet on, and thank you. - Jim Kohn, www.theCustomerServiceSolution.com

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.

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.
