Dished @ Collision 2015 - Show Notes

Description

I think we all know that finding places to eat can be a challenge, whether you are at home or in a new city. Google Places was a disaster, map services are offensively out of date, and Yelp never seems to return the content you search for. While we were in Vegas, we were victims of Yelp's incorrect information about the menu of a restaurant.

Luckily we're not the only ones who have been burned by this issue. Because of that there is Dished, a platform designed to focus on the contents of the restaurant: the menu. Ratings, reviews and photos are all centered on dishes as opposed to the restaurant as a whole, meaning you can get a far better picture of whether or not this is a place you are interested in going. A 4.5 rating on 950 reviews means nothing if the place is lousy at the thing you're looking for, right?

Dished is available now for iOS with other platforms coming soon.

Trey Davis

Host

Trey was born into a tech career. Instead of going to summer camp as a child, Trey spent summers working at the local news station with his father, an Emmy award winning news director. He honed his audio skills singing in a band, and later worked as a lighting and audio technician for a theme park. Within two years he became the lead technician for the entire park, which included a fully operational CNN sponsored TV station, a full theater and a circus. Later, he became the lead lighting and audio tech for one of the Ringling Bros. circuses, with a stint as a clown for the pure joy of performing. It was at Ringling that he met his wife, who he calls the most beautiful, loving, and funny person he has ever met, and who is also the creator of the 3000 Brigade. Trey was a performer with the 3000 Brigade for nine shows, as well as hosting the 3000 Brigade Podcast, while still doing media on the side. Trey currently edits and cleans audio for PLuGHiTz shows and has also been a special events host.
