His proudest UO accomplishment: GMing in cooking. On fish steaks, naturally.
These numbers don't make sense to me.
Certainly Tsukiji is bigger than Fulton, but I'm expected to believe that Fulton moves 115 tons per year ... or, what, 500 lbs of fish per day?
I imagine that Fulton moves 115 tons PER DAY, and Tsukiji moves 2,000 tons PER DAY.
Fulton doing 6% of Tsukiji is plausible. Fulton doing 0.02% is not.
This paper has the Fulton Fish Market moving approx. 115,000 tons per year, based on an NYT article from 2005. This puts the FFM near a much more respectable ~300 tons/day.
Reminds me of the metaphor Clay Shirky uses in his "Love, Internet Style" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe1TZaElTAs) speech. He talks about the Ise Shinto shrine, which the Japanese claim to be 1300 years old even though the building itself is rebuilt periodically. The Japanese think it is 1300 years old because the function of the shrine has existed for 1300 years, just like the function of this man has been around since 1861, even if he, the mere physical manifestation of this function, has not. Interesting way to think and define oneself.
On-Topic: Anything that good hackers would find interesting. That includes more than hacking and startups. If you had to reduce it to a sentence, the answer might be: anything that gratifies one's intellectual curiosity.
You have drill down the menus. I don't get the direct link.
Click on "Full Episodes A-E" in the middle bar and then Chef Abroad.
The Aircraft Carrier episode and Tokyo Food Adventure episode are interesting too.
