Getting social over dinner

This early '90s AT&T concept video of an interactive "computer sous chef" has been making the viral rounds this week - but aside from being a giggle, there's actually a pretty interesting takeaway here.

Batting order is a popular topic in baseball. Who should bat where, what is the role of a player in a certain slot, should x player be moved down or up and so on. In general, I think that the batting order is over-rated and when I ... Continue reading

A week ago, I was making plans to get up at 4 a.m. with maybe 8 other Lawrence residents (hey Cathy Swanson!) to start the marathon of Royal Wedding viewing -- but then I did something irrational -- I called to check on package deals for a ... Continue reading
