Public Lecture by William Aspray, „Food and the Internet: The Dark Side“
Freitag, 13. Januar 2017, 10:00-11:15 Uhr Organisiert dem Teilprojekt A01

This talk presents two of the studies from a recent book /Food and the Internet/, written with doctoral students George Royer and Melissa Ocepek. The first part is about Webvan, the online food and delivery service that lost the most money of any company in the dot-com bust. The second part is about harm to consumers and small brick-and-mortar companies caused by Internet food companies, using as case studies the online reviewing company yelp, the online discount coupon company Groupon, and the online restaurant reservations company OpenTable.
