Local Motors & MOTO

Saw two entrepreneurs on TV this morning. Both pretty true to the real meanings of the word.

Both with m-o-t-o in their names.

One runs a large restaurant and is moving into “food design” and internal farms.

He is also working on production of food right within his own restaurant. Here’s the farm video summary: http://motorestaurant.com/farm/ and some text: http://news.medill.northwestern.edu/chicago/news.aspx?id=163075
