"Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act. Maxwell Maltz" Repost from @bikini

I think over time if could be a good thing.

As order kiosks replace cashiers in #McDonald's and other "#Fightfor15" #fastfoodrestaurants, a restaurant startup that's opening in #SanFrancisco next week will feature what would be a milestone in the history of food service (and also the latest sign that robots are about to take over far more fast-food jobs): On June 27, the restaurant will become the first to serve burgers cooked and assembled by a robot. According to Bloomberg, the burger will be assembled and cooked in a machine that contains 20 computers, 350 sensors, and 50 actuator mechanisms - and zero human interference, other than having somebody present to hand the finished burger to customers.

The company, called #Creator, was founded by entrepreneur Alex Vardakostas in 2012. The 33-year-old has had experiencing working in burger restaurants since he was young; growing up in #SouthernCalifornia, his family owned the A's Burgers chain, as well as several other restaurants. Building a robot to build a more efficient burger has always been a source of fascination for Vardakostas, who started construction of what he calls "the burger robot" in his parent's garage back in 2010. Since then, he has been working to assemble a dream team of engineers, robotics experts and chefs to help him finish the machine and round out the concept. He's also raised at least $18 million in venture funding from Google ventures and other sources.

Building the #burgerrobot was always something Vardakostas has always wanted to do. "When you make 400 of the same burger every day, you can’t help but think, 'How would I make this experience better?'" he said.

Creator's first restaurant will be located at 680 Folsom St., in San Francisco's trendy SoMa neighborhood, one of "San Francisco's top 5 priciest neighborhoods". Food costs at the restaurant are unusually high, amounting to roughly 40% of the sticker price of the burger. But Vardakostas said his company saves money on labor thanks to the machine, allowing it to spend more on ingredients... 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#Automation #Technocracy #SocioEconomicReformation #AutonomousSociety

@ProgressiveMass honored several #progressive champions last Wednesday at its Summer Soirée & Awards Night in #Newton. The recipients were Jonathan Cohn, @revmitulski, Rep. Mary Keefe, and @thelifeof_paz. We also celebrated the passage of #FightFor15 and #PaidFamilyMedicalLeave! #MApoli #RUM

@fightfor15florida leaders from across the state held a press conference in Tampa today to announce a statewide voter registration drive to mobilize people paid less than $15 an hour to register to vote ahead of the August 28 Primary for the midterm election. The statewide drive will aim to register first-time or infrequent voters, often overlooked, calling on people to support candidates in support of a $15 an hour minimum wage & willing to overturn Florida’s existing racist right to work laws. #Fightfor15 #politicsmatter

Oh but he deserves it, those people working 40+ hours a week and who are on food stamps are just lazy! Photo by @social_liberals #mcdonalds #ceo #incomeinequality #fightfor15 •*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*

The youth members of our community are so incredible and inspiring! Here’s a #tbt from March when they attended #RaiseUpMA to #FightFor15 and making real change. Yesterday, the MA Legislature passed what it’s been called the “Grand Bargain” which will raise minimum wage to $15 and provide paid family medical leave. .

Happy birthday to the incredible Jovie Galit! I facilitated a public speaking workshop with her Newcomer Youth Advisory Committee Ambassadors last night, and I was amazed to see the Jovie magic at work. Not only does she make her youth feel at home at #WestNeighbourhoodHouse, but she takes them on amazing trips (Wonderland! Hiking at Rattlesnake Point! Beach volleyball!), and she prioritizes civic engagement and introduces them to leaders like the ones spearheading the #Fightfor15 campaign. And on top of it all, she even makes the youth personalized notebooks with their names done in her signature @pinacalligraphy style. She’s incredible, and as you can tell by these pics, the youth are happy to have her in their lives. Happy birthday, Jovie!

#TBT to when hundreds of O’Hare Airport workers went on STRIKE in their #FightFor15 and union rights! Check out a recap of the incredible action and like if you agree that #PovertyDoesntFly!
