It seems that in recent months the internet has moved out of the spotlight due to the many companies that have shown little profit. I feel that this is just a down swing cycle, and eventually business will figure out a more profitable solution to incorporating the internet into day to day business. What I am wondering is as the internet starts to mature what types of changes would you as a chef like to see? All of your purveyors online, reservations done online, finding cooks online, etc? All of these things are currently on the internet, but they are not everyday tools yet for many chefs. I am interested in getting some discussion going about what direction we would like to see the internet grow. One thing I could see happening is smart appliances becoming more mainstream in kitchens. What if your POS system and your appliances were linked? So your database system averages how many customers you do on a Saturday night and then checks how many porterhouse steaks you have left in your grill gooks reach in. It is Friday night, and he/she only has twelve steaks left and your system knows that you average about 27 steak sales on Saturday. After the security code is punched into to close down the restaurant your system shoots and order to your meet purveyor for the needed steaks. Pretty cool stuff and especially since a lot of the technology has been developed it just hasn't reached a practical implementation level.
