Last night I was able to go to a panel discussion with Ferran Adria, Nathan Myhrvold, and Harold McGee, moderated by Lisa Abend - WOW! It was amazing to see all three of them talking abou the evolution of modernist cooking.

The key take aways for me were that until there was food science you really had to apprentice to try and become a domain expert and still you might have a narrow understanding of the cooking process. The other take away is to think of the moderist food movement like other modern forms of expression in the classical arts - dance, architecture, visual arts.

The added bonus was to have some dishes served by Tony Maws of Craigie On Main - Yum.

That sounds similar to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IntelliTXT, which drives me nuts -- brushing my cursor across one of the links covers the article I'm reading with a popup of related ads. Is this less intrusive?

I nice article on +Google Ventures portfolio company +Recorded Future in the NYT bits section.
Large and diverse sets of data have become abundant online. Now the cost of analyzing and visualizing that data is dropping fast, with implications for all kinds of decision-making. A company called R...

Well done +Trada Inc. A great post about our +Google Ventures portfolio company and their pending Facebook ad support!
Trada, which crowdsources search engine ads, now does the same for social networking ads, which it says will change the future of search.

I was laughing hard when I watched this last night, but wow does it worry me. It might as well be the Dark Ages - it feels like much of the Republican machine wants people to be ignorant so they are easier to rule, they are casting science as evil. How is this different than throwing Galileo in prison?
Aasif Mandvi sits down with a Republican strategist to get the cold, hard facts on science.

This is a really funny video. What's so tragic is that, if this were making fun of my company, we'd have everyone working overtime to fix the issue. But it seems that the people who control both American political parties want it this way...they want it to be a big inside joke. They will laugh even harder when they see some people only laughing when it's not about the side they emotionally invested in. Meanwhile, at both conventions this year, the delegates were yelling to go one way while the people at the podium brazenly said that the delegates were surely agreeing to go in the other way. Apparently, party knows best.

Great service and staff. I have been going for over 10 years to this practice - and thanks to them I hardly have to go at all these days.
