Uber-packaging site Dieline has gotten their paws on Jamie Oliver's latest attempt to make british food edible. JK brits.
The more official release states "Recipease, a new concept in UK retail, is a chain of food stores where shoppers can prepare meals in store under the guidance of professional chefs. Like many of his television shows, the stores are designed to inspire more people to take an interest in food and cooking."
Jamie's new food and kitchen shop aims to help anyone learn to cook and make food. Its also quite on trend as far as convenient pre-made / ready-to-assemble food, with a twist of its own in stand-alone retail location. JO is quite popular in the UK and US, interesting to see how this shakes out.
Will G Ramsey or other celebu-chefs follow suit? Touche Bobby Flay!

So ive been absent on here, as ive fallen completely head over heels into the world of twitter. Its a different scope of communication, but one that has superseded this blog (sorry). Twitter is a more instantaneous, rapid way of conversing. Much of what prevents me from posting on here is the actual time to collect and organize my thoughts. Lame to say but tougher than one might think after a full day of doing so.
Twitter is a more instant brain dump so of course im taking the easier way out and migrating there. This year for the superbowl, more folks were conversing on twitter vs live-blogging bc/ its more conversational. That was really my original aim for starting my blog. Dont worry, still lots of goodie content to come on LF but you can reach me in my day-to-day mode there.

Sometimes to create the future you need to take a mental leap and work backwards. This highly edited and slick production from Microsoft gives us some hope that the software giant is well-suited to lead us to a grander place.

In the era of Quick N Easy Content, a few interesting things are happening. One is that a voice can come from anywhere. Another is that any voice can be relevant. Voices can create relevancy, by opening a dialogue or striking the right chord in a present conversation. In a traditional media world, much of the conversation was out of the consumers hands. These days people contribute where they see fit. And i think we are all benefiting.
A new PSA directed by acclaimed filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen for ThisIsReality.org, was created with the aim of debunking "clean coal" industry propaganda. It was produced in partnership with Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection. Clean Coal is one of the biggest misnomers out there. Its also a huge opportunity for us to shut down CC, and move onto Nuclear or sustainable power sources. Yet lobbyists have had such an impact, you will find mentions of clean coal in the last few decades of the President's state of the union address. Nice to see those with the clout and ability to make a conversation relevant like the Cohen's contribute in the right way.
