Also check out What we can learn from spaghetti sauce by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s one of my favorites.

I guess since we’re all posting TED Talks I’ll link one of my favorites:

I wish I could remember which TED talk it was where a professional marketer told Pepsi that there should be something like 15 different Pepsis, in order to serve the people who like things a little bit more sweet, less sweet, stronger, weaker, etc.

If only the introduction to TED talks didn’t have AlGore, I would like them more.

the comment about Pepsi was actually mentioned in Malcolm Gladwell’s talk that Nick posted above

And the Labor Movement is totally busted (Gompers) as a racist (among other things) institution whose sole purpose is to exclude others from the labor market.

Golly, I like american Chinese food, and I run Linux.

I’m just spontaneousing in all kinds of directions…..!?

I like Afghani food and I run Plan 9.

What does that make me…? *anxiety rolls in*

Thanks for posting this, Mr. Tucker.

I took it on a wild tangent in a post on my blog where I discuss spontaneous order in the context of the Christian church.


Weird enough? ;)

Funny yet a lesson is learned. The belief of eating in one place is not necessarily good at all times. The quality of food might suffer. It takes dedication and perseverance to get the positive nod of your customers.

Now I have a craving for Chinese food. Went to China a couple years ago and was amazed with how different the food was there compared to American Chinese food. Both places have some items better than the other.
