'Tampering' with customers' food.
How often is this done, to what degree, and what's the split between wait and kitchen staff?

Very very rarely. Been cooking and serving for over a decade now, and have never personally witnessed that. My experience ranges from fast food, to shitty small-town greasetraps, to decent places in a city, to 2-star Michelin level.

Don't bother having this discussion with me, pal, because you won't win.

He won't win because it's impossible to win an argument with a moron.

I should also say that I put down a C-note that I know more about SEO, internet marketing, branding, etc... than does he.

Anytime someone uses any two of those internet branding/marketing/SEO terms in a sentence it generally spells out: "I have few if any professional skills but I really really really need a job. Please help." Standard Twitter/Facebook spam language

I refuse to believe this until somebody puts it down in writing.

It was on his website. And yes, you can follow him on Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter. Maybe his advice is to use a lot of hash marks on twitter.

I'm amused by this concept of the social media expert. Fascinated really. I have had to point out a number of times to these "professionals" that I have more Twitter followers than they do and I don't even follow anyone back patch[1].gif

Good luck to them

There actually is a lot of technical knowledge about the Google algorithms, etc.. and usually, you need contacts in these companies to really get things right.

A lot of it is just bunk, of course, but you can find real experts who actually study social dynamics on the internet. For example, if I wanted to study Styleforum, I'd use modified graph theory, thematic content analysis, and probably narrative analysis, on the database. Problem is that all the available analytical tools would require expert users to properly use them and interpret the results.

I'll be sure to contact a professional agency should I ever care to investigate such things. I don't do much analyzing of my twitter/facebook followings biggrin.gif

This kind of stuff is really a black art. Google reveals nothing about their algorithms and they change them without notice. So once you get a bead on something it changes and you give back the gain.

I read the Page/Brin thesis about the search algorithm. Its an excellent read. They really make some interesting design decisions on the structure of the search engine that made is so remarkably better than anything else in the market when it first came out. It was palpable, I noticed it right away on my first search.

Wish they werent so secretive.

I had live-in maids a bit higher than that salary range when I lived in the Gulf. Thieving wenches all of them; the pilferage was unbelievable. They'd post laundry detergent back to India. A can of furniture polish would be "all used" in two days. One ran a lunchtime catering business cooking and serving my food to the security guards. This explains why refrigerators sold in the region have locks built into them.

When caught each rationalized her theft with this very same explanation: "But Sir, you come from a rich country."
