This is an fascinating essay on coffee, hand crafted food and beverages and the crossroads of technology via mechanization.

"Humans are imperfect, and so a world of perfection that denies the human element can never be truly perfect after all."

They practically already have - they no longer have Baristas, but button pushers who run fully-automatic machines.  The only thing their Baristas do in addition to push buttons is to froth milk.

It's a whole 'nother story in Seattle, where *$'s operates a few "under-cover Indie" shops.  Void of any *$'s branding and free to pull on semi-auto machines any bean their Baristas feel worthy, it's the only place in the entire chain where quality still matters.

Shameless selfie and Google glass. Hashtag classy.

Can't say I had enough experience to even give proper review but as someone that has been wearing correctional lens my entire life, it seems backwards to wear glasses, despite having inventions like contact lenses. It even hits me home bigger as I am considering Lasik. On that note, I really look forward to that day where the screens are small enough to be embed into contact lenses and Nike can develop an app that can help me play like Jordan. +Wes Chyrchel

How much time do you really spend on social media?

http://mashable.com/2012/11/28/social-media-time/

Social Media now accounts for 18% of time spent online. What did we ever do without it?

Debbie Drummond has wealth of knowledge when it comes to Las Vegas luxury real estate in investment. We can’t say enough about her work ethic. W are so grateful to have found Debbie, of all the other Realtors in Las Vegas.

Seating is quite limited but the atmosphere is great! Great selection of beer, it's a nice change to wine centric downtown Encinitas area. Beer section tends to lean heavy towards Belgian beers, but you can find pretty rare domestic craft beers on tap also. What I like most about Encinitas Ale House is that they always, always have proper stemware for each and every beer that they serve. Remember kids to always drink your beer in the proper glassware, because a properly served beer is a better beer. 1 star for service 1 star for beer selection 1 star for food 1 star for atmosphere 1 star for proper stemware Taking away 1 star because I can never find a place to sit. But again, that’s a sign that the people of Encinitas love the Ale House!

Been looking for a yoga studio in Carlsbad ever since Bodacious went out of business. Been going to Gretchen's yoga class every week on Tuesdays and it is awesome. Deborah is also another wonderful teacher. Owners Michele and Janice are both great people and are holistic practitioners who care. Place is kind of hidden but it’s my little secret.
