Anyone else find this interesting. Creating an connection between the offline and online world.

 

I think the video on ear boogers, which I found below the article on Groupon, is more interesting:

Looks like Groupon is testing a new idea every week. If they keep going they might invent something useful in 20-50 years.

Along the same lines is Bezos saying he'd love to open physical Amazon stores (as long as they could could make them distinctive).

And the Toys R Us chief was quoted in the FT yesterday:

 

"Established store retailers add more internet, and the internet-only guys add stores and other physicality.  It's so clearly the future model that it almost seems ridiculous that we're debating it".

I don't know what it all means, but it's interesting!  ???
