To discuss their next steps, fine dining reps, including from Osteria Francescana ('world's best restaurant' twice), DirtCandy (veggie-driven food), two S.Pellegrino Young Chef winners, Gluttonomy (marketing) and Tock (delivery) will be speaking at a webinar happening tonight (1am GMT+8). | also

Payments
There are still lots of untapped potential in payments. Examples: 1) More efficient payment-delivery cycle 2) Use of ewallets as an alternative to programmable digital currency eg. the use of e-vouchers which have time limits (and thus cannot be hoarded). More on payments and fintech: 1 2 3 4.
