From the Los Angeles Times:

"After waiting half an hour for a restaurant burrito, San Francisco entrepreneur Brian Mayer came up with the idea for ReservationHop.com — a website that allows buyers to purchase reservations for tables at popular restaurants, reserved far ahead of time under false names.

He had no idea the debate it would soon spark. Hours after the launching the site earlier this month, he met a torrent of negative feedback online. On Twitter, Reservation Hop became associated with the new trend #JerkTech. Mayer stopped providing the service last week...

Most critics see Reservation Hop as inventing an unnecessary market, saying it disadvantages the poor, deals in shady terms with false names and may hurt restaurant table-filling in the long run."
