Date posted: March 15, 2016

Just like social media allows us to find each other across time and place, to interact, to discover, to speak, to listen, to inform, to engage, to transact, to query, to learn, to guide, to orchestrate, to announce, to follow and to lead, it's now time for our machines to be able to do the same.

Date posted: May 1, 2015

fast-foodRemember the local fish and chip store, Chinese restaurant, pie and sauce and chicko roll? Well, they like many other cultural norms, made way for their successor the mostly American hamburger and pizza format stores which 40 years ago heralded in a new way to eat-out and a new cuisine.
