The choice is ours

Back to the blog

Well, the move was successful and all boxes now unpacked, it’s back to the blog.  Actually, I’ve been extremely busy with work too this past week, as we move towards a revamp of our system to complement our new, national level service providers.  Our previous system only required small/large parcel specification, whereas now we are requesting dimensions for all packages.  This will result in more accurate quotes, though for me it’s resulted in a few late nights handling all sorts of if/then algorithms.  We’re also close to completion of the alpha version of our API toolkit, which will allow third parties to plug into our system to get quotes and place orders – our subcontractors are reporting a version ready for evaluation within the next day or two.

Aside from all that, Winterlicious is in full force across town, so there’s plenty of options for dining, and I’m hoping to get out and check a few places in the coming weeks.  In other food news, Michael Pollan, author of the fascinating The Omnivore’s Dilemma, has a great article in the NYT magazine, Unhappy Meals – his advice: Eat Food.  Not too much.  Mostly vegetables.  Can it really be that simple?

Currently reading: Unhappy Meals – Michael Pollen (New York Times Magazine)
