Lunch Catered by Internet Middlemen -
September 24, 2011

San Francisco-based, delivers food from carts and small
restaurants to businesses that aren’t big enough to afford their own
chefs. The Web was supposedly eliminating the need for the layers of
brokers, agents, wholesalers & even retailers that separate the
consumer from the producer.

That has happened in some instances, e.g. drastically reducing the role
of travel agents. But consumers still need help and the Web has provided
the tools & the environment for companies like to
flourish. It has made it easier for middlemen to reach consumers and
made it remarkably easy and inexpensive for these middlemen to create
companies to do just that.

While there has been a lot of talk about how the technology industry
does not create jobs on the scale of traditional manufacturing — a
shrunken GM still employs more people than a thriving Google — the
Internet has made it a lot easier to create a broad array of new small
intermediaries  San_Francisco  disintermediation  5BO  delivery  food_trucks  middlemen  small_business  travel_agents  new_businesses  inexpensive

Book Review: Food Trucks -
APRIL 30, 2011 | WSJ | By PAUL LUKAS. A Food Movement on
Wheels. Lukas reviews Food Trucks

By Heather Shouse
Ten Speed Press, 200 pages, $20
"Food Trucks," a guidebook that serves as a de facto overview of the
current state of American street food. Long derided as a lowbrow guilty
pleasure at best, and unsanitary and flavorless at worst, street food
has undergone a renaissance, as mobile barbecue shacks, crêperies and
even pizzerias have become popular. In perhaps the surest sign that the
phenomenon is reaching its tipping point, food trucks now have their own
reality show, "The Great Food Truck Race," which debuted on the Food
Network last year.

IDEO's Axioms for Starting Disruptive New Businesses | Co.Design
August 24 | Fast Company | by Colin Raney who leads the
Business Design Community within IDEO. TAKE ACTION: Designing for Life's

1. Go early, go often
Building experimentation into your business is harder than you think.
Start small and stay focused. Try everything, but don’t try it all in
one prototype.

2. Learning by doing
Build value for the business as you prototype. If you fail, what will
you have learned? What will you salvage?

3. Inspiration through constraint
Don’t exhaust yourself searching for money and resources. The tighter
your constraints, the more creative your prototypes will be.

4. Open to opportunity
Look for unanticipated ways customers are using your offering. Their
improvisations may be the future of your business.
