I'm a programmer, currently working on my startup, econemon.com [sorry, German only, yet], which builds specialized middleware to use in the growing number of energy monitoring and smart metering applications.

I love to eat well, and I like about cooking that it brings together very deep, archaic human roots (gathering around the fire and eat) with advanced science and technology (Japanese steel blades, chemistry) and our natural environment (the plants and animals that we eat).

I care a lot about organic food, and while I love to eat meat, I do so only modestly and carefully pick where I get it from.

comment Good ways to store coffee?
I've never seen coffee shops store beans at anything but room temperature, even those who import large amounts and store them for months. Keeping them airtight (even in vacuum bags) and whole, on the other hand, is taken very seriously by everybody I've seen. I'm guessing the temperature doesn't matter nearly as much as the oxygen.

comment how to store lettuce
It's interesting that you get good results with whole heads, they go limp in my fridge much faster than when I clean the leaves and put them in airtight containers.
