Today's comic was about Photosynthesis as a Service. If trees could somehow turn the process of converting solar energy into chemical energy into an on-demand thing you purchased via the web, they probably wood. Sorry, I like tree puns even though they're not poplar.
Well I was reading this article about Everything as a Service. Go read it now and then come back. Really, I'll wait. Okay, now we can continue. So I read that article and I was thinking about what Colonel Sanders would do. No, that's not weird. I often think about what Colonel Sanders would do in different situations.
Here's the thing - one of the points of the "Everything as a Service" article was how the food service industry in particular is starting to embrace the outsourcing of parts of the business. Now for the Colonel Sanders part. You may or may not know that the Colonel is credited with inventing the franchise model for the fast food business. That was big at the time, but if he was starting his business today he might go with the Whatever as a Service model as his big idea.
