Last week at a loft in Manhattan’s Financial District, a deep cut from Wilco’s Sky Blue Sky plays softly on the Jambox while programmers and UX specialists bang away at a table lined with glowing MacBooks. There’s a business-ops guy and a customer-ops guy huddling in the corner, and a slick publicist quietly taking notes as I ask a chef a few questions. “Terrified,” says the chef of her restaurant’s imminent launch.
