    Distant Publics: Development Rhetoric and the Subject of CrisisBy Jenny RiceI finished this book a while back, but have only now eked out some time to review it. Here, Jenny Rice examines public discourse set around issues of development in my beloved hometown and the place where Jenny earned her PhD: Austin, Texas. She asks: "How do people argue, debate, and deliberate about the spaces where we live, work, shop, and travel?" And why does development proliferate even though it seems to be so broadly disliked? Her answer revolves around a figure, "the exceptional public subject," who "occupies…

    Diffusion of Innovations, 5th EditionBy Everett M. RogersIn Bruno Latour's discussions of science and technology, he often contrasts two models by which new innovations spread: diffusion and translation. Roughly, diffusion is seen as a process by which people take up an innovation "as is" and apply it unaltered. Translation is a process in which people adapt the innovation for their own contexts. That is, as Latour likes to say, there is no adoption without adaptation.However, Latour is using a fairly crabbed understanding of what scholars mean by diffusion. In this thick and…

    Working while travelling can be challenging. Coffee shops are fine for checking and sending a couple of emails, but Internet connections can be unreliable and you can’t always secure a spot by a plug-in. Co-working spaces offer a practical alternative with hourly and daily drop-in fees or flexible membership options. Available resources will typically include fast Internet upload and download speeds, private meeting and conference rooms, printing, copying and scanning facilities and mail and switchboard services, not to mention a rich networking environment. Here are four favourites.

    Metro Vancouver now has the distinction of being the mail theft capital of Canada, accounting for almost half of all mail thefts from community mailboxes across the country. This is based on information collected and released by Canada Post for 2013 and, so far this year, there are already over 250 break-ins in Langley alone. This has left many residents worried about the risk of identity theft, to be sure. You’ve likely also heard that Canada Post plans on rolling out a lot more community mailboxes in the next five years, gradually phasing out the traditional door-to-door delivery…

    What makes your company unique? Me! No other company has me, and my company has no one else! What inspired you to get into this line of work? I’ve been programming since I was 6, and doing it as a proffesion since I dropped out of school at the age of 16, so over 20 years now. What do you enjoy the most about what you do? I find that programming to me is a form of art, and much like most forms of art there are two aspects to it, both the craftsmanship and the artistry. Where do you see your industry going in the next 2 years? Software Dev, and games specifically are just getting bigger.

TripAdvisor recently named Stanley Park as the world’s best urban park. Unfortunately, not all of these titles are positive ones. Metro Vancouver has also been named as the mail theft capital of Canada. The biggest part of the mail theft problem is coming from the increased use of “community mailboxes,” both in condominium and townhouse…

As space owners and coworking catalyst we work hard to create a culture and community that we view best fits the individuals in the neighborhood  and our current members. We take careful considerations of the design of the space, the amenities, and events that will be held there. But do we think about how the pricing structure affects the culture? Sure we think about price points and do a break-even analysis, but most spaces do not consider how it will affect the culture of the community.
