Their forthcoming New York location is in prime douche territory. I was surprised -- but maybe I shouldn't have been.

Kickstarter to publish their recipe book. Positively brilliant. They cut out the publishing houses. Already doubled the amount they were seeking thanks to their acolytes.

I hope they don't stint on finding the best production team. They've got the $$$ for it now. It would be shame if there were errors in it.

 

Unlike a self-publishing acquaintance of mine who funds every book herself each time, they pretty much will be making a profit on each sale. (She willfully ignores all her production and distribution costs, as well as the cost of her time.)

While Kokonas's penchant for transparency is laudable, I don't think he's accounting for how making everything transparent just unleashes the demon of Goodhart's Law, and can end up leaving everyone worse off.
