Caroline Shin's Blackberry

This Blackberry belonged to Caroline Shin, one of the founders of the Kogi Korean BBQ food truck in Los Angeles. Serving a fusion of Korean and Mexican cuisine, the truck could go wherever the people where, tweeting out its location to attract customers. The proliferation of smartphones with a ubiquitous data connection allowed Twitter to become a powerful marketing tool, allowing food trucks to find customers, determine their desires, and announce the food truck’s location.
