Diet guidelines from shopping habits
Supermarkets must be awash with great data on peoples shopping habits from their store cards. I hypothesize that it would be possible to accurately determine someones diet from their supermarket shopping habits (although I realise that people still buy a lot of their snack food, takeaways, etc outside of supermarkets). If such a hypothesis proved to be true, the data would allow identification of the most dietary "at risk" people, who could be referred for medical help. Alternatively, the supermarket could take it upon themselves to make suggestions to help people, although I doubt this would go down well with customers.
If you get the sense from reading this blog that I like to think, and you believe that my kind of thinking might be useful to you or your organisation, please get in touch. I offer free consultancy for startups, delivered via email and instant messaging.
This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
