Blind Cow Restaurant

This restaurant in Germany and Switzerland serves food completely in the dark.  It’s called Blind Cow, and most of the staff is blind.  You eat your food in the dark and everything is run on your other senses.  The actual website is in German, but I found an article describing the place:

First time as a Volunteer at Seva Cafe, Long Beach

I was lucky enough to go on the Service Trip with the gang that went to India in Dec 2005. So, I got to volunteer for a night at Seva Cafe, Ahmedabad.

We are lucky to be living in a time of the “internet revolution” (where people can easily network with each other using machines) and the “Open Source revolution” in business — where “software” (ideas) are laid out for anyone to use, experiment, and tinker with the assumption that any new changes will be checked back in for prosperity’s sake. So, I was pretty glad that there was a move going back to “Open food”. Check out the middle paragraph in this little write up I an year after getting to think about what Seva Cafe is about. It made me think a little about how the notion of Free and Open are subtly different.
