I took it to mean that the entertainment space was a live music venue east of the food hall

Re: Tom Colicchio-involved "Food Hall" to Mission Mall site?

!?

Is this as out-of-the-blue to everyone else? I haven't heard any local dev news on the Gateway in who knows how long, and Food & Wine breaks the story?

This seems very encouraging to me, maybe the most sensible of all the attempted "wow" concepts pitched here in 10 years.

Re: Smart City Project

Thanks! The type of longstanding, grad-student churning-out research programs are a long road. I've long lamented the distance to Rolla. Oh well. Testbed not explicitly connected to Google's experiments in the 3.5, but fixed wireless is part of it. We've actually agreed to partner with Startland a l...

Re: Smart City Project

Or to put it another way, of all the GF impact to KC, the local Smart City initiative may create most significant opportunity to maintain leadership in a new industry. KC has a headstart but may become a challenge to maintain top player status if the regional universities don't get on board and tak...

Re: Smart City Project

KC's head start can capitalize on the attention with some tangible outcomes, more than it did with Google Fiber. KC has a shot at becoming a long term major industry player I would argue that this smart city head start is in fact a tangible outcome from Google Fiber; certainly one of the intentiona...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

With all the hoopla surrounding it plus getting your fiberhood to sign up meet a quota so a school can get free wifi plus stupid marketing to make it all hip and exclusive, was it really worth it? I almost feel like the City got swindled a bit. In addition to earthling's good description of what we...

In a community meeting last week, he said he has a signed agreement with Aloft and an Element hotel. Three retailers--grocer, sporting goods, electronics--sounds like he's close-ish w 2 of 3. Nothing above those three retailers.

I went once, several months ago, had three different tacos that bordered on inedible. My expectations were modest, but still disappointed.

Re: The Health Care Debate

Is the new year-long extension of individuals' ability to keep non-complying plans the key concession that legislators were holding out for during the government shutdown?

Re: Gay marriage

Geez, this thread is nuts. Kind of interesting, but largely perplexing. It seems to me that the idea of uniting male and female has been (historically and cross-culturally) more fundamental to the idea of marriage than the number of people involved. The complementary union of male and female has a l...
