mass innovation night -- foodie theme

Whoa, I'm behind on posting about Mass Innovation Night number 17. I've been so busy spreading the word about online ordering and catnip greeting cards and Cooking for Geeks, that I've neglected this blog. I've also been wracking my brains for a way to connect the food theme of #MIN17 with technical writing. Except for the idea that technical writers are now essentially the same as cupcakes (stay tuned for a future entry on tech writer as cupcake) and that my favorite take away from the night was a cookbook, I'm stuck for a profound professional connection.

So, here are my favorites of the night:

First thing Thursday morning:

  • Told the owner of my local coffee shop about 1fastbite.
  • Notified my former colleagues that online ordering from BHB, their favorite takeout, is available through 1fastbite.
  • Sent emails to connect Catnip Cards with Merrimack River Feline Rescue where I used to be on the board.
  • Sat down with my new signed copy of Cooking for Geeks and read up on the science of some of the things I like to cook.
In other news somewhat related to Mass Innovation Nights, when I went up to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Friday, I noticed that an electric bike company has already implemented the idea I had after July's innovation night: electric bike rental at off-refuge parking location.

Readers, chime in on the comments section to let me know how technical writing and foodie innovation are related.
