Stumbled across this while checking out the rest of the blog after a post on FinTech on today's Hacker News:

A well designed online service with real impact in mind - hats off to the founders and team for using their skill to better the world around them! The button leading to action related to user's needs up is up front and center; the description of the service right above the button. The service component is sourced from the crowd - with individual listeners listed with reviews and descriptions - much like other modern service models (AirBnb, etc). I wonder if larger health organizations can adopt a similar model for other areas of advice / consult for their customers/consumers (I would imagine there are already plenty companies in this space - the question is how well is the service presented and provided... and easy to use).

First post of a series I hope to build up. Moments / points of awesome - those times/situations/photos/stories/people/scenarios that light up your entire day/week/month/year(s) with a positive feel and thought.

Cambridge (MA) is awesome (I do believe this will be an entire subsection of .awesome):

Before paying for my meal at the Chipotle in Central Square, the store manager asks me to join their crew in doing the wave. Across the register counter, I watch as they start the wave at the salad area and go all the way to the manager at the register, who then looks to me to complete it - I wave my arms up and down to complete the motion, without hesitation. I then become the starting point for the next wave, this time going back to the salad part of the delicious burrito assembly line. The manager, the crew and I all laugh, enjoying the moment. The manager then pushes the brown bag with the tacos over to me, saying 'No charge'. What a simple, yet such pleasant, fun moment.
