TWO GROUPS OF OPINION DRIVERS…
Opinion Drivers are the individuals who, every day, influence their friends, colleagues, and peers. They fall into two categories:
A relatively small group of Opinion Drivers is the famous personalities whom we read about in newspapers and see on television. They help shape opinion by virtue of their elected offices, access to media, or leadership roles in business and industry. What sets these people apart is their ability to affect public opinion on a grand scale.
A larger group of Opinion Drivers is the roughly 30 million grassroots influencers we know through our communities: friends, neighbors, PTA members, firefighters, homemakers, small business owners, and non-profit directors to name a few.
Collectively, grassroots Opinion Drivers are an enormous and growing force because Americans place decreasing trust in old-line opinion leaders such as network anchors and politicians; they’re turning to each other for advice and guidance in these fast-changing times. Where is a good place to eat out? What’s the best car to buy? Who’s the best candidate for school board and for president? More and more, Americans are turning to trusted friends and neighbors to answer such questions and manage the crush of information at their fingertips in the info-tech age. If you’ve ever been asked, “Hey, what do you think about…,” then you are probably an Opinion Driver. Welcome to the HOTSOUP.com community.

MOTIVATION. Psychology tells us that motivation- true, lasting
motivation- can only come from within. Common sense tells us it can't
be manufactured or productized. So how is it that a multi-billion
dollar industry thrives through the sale of motivational commodities
and services? Because, in our world of instant gratification, people
desperately want to believe that there are simple solutions to
complex problems. And when desperation has disposable income, market
AT DESPAIR, INC., we believe motivational products create unrealistic
expectations, raising hopes only to dash them. That's why we created
our soul-crushingly depressing Demotivators® designs, so you can skip
the delusions that motivational products induce and head straight for
the disappointments that follow!
There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours

News for Curious Cooks
...I'm filing brief reports from the intersection of food and science. It’s a lively neighborhood these days. There’s a constant influx of new information in food chemistry and microbiology, agriculture and manufacturing, and in human perception and health. I glean items from current technical publications and scientific meetings, from conversations with cooks and scientists, and from questions that come up in my own kitchen. --Harold McGee
