David Chang Producing an iPad App + Journal

New York Times, [“David Chang’s Latest: An iPad App and a Journal”](http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/25/david-changs-latest-an-ipad-app-and-a-journal/):

But I will keep trying. I will set my goofy little iPhone alarm so that I don’t look at the clock at 10:01:30 and curse that I missed the witching hour. I will autofill my login and try clicking on reservation times that other people may not try. I will sigh, day after day, as I fail to get a two-top – but I will not give up.

First world problems, indeed.
