    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…

  • Financial Modeling: How to Plan for Success Early On

    29 Jul 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Financial Modeling has been considered one of the hardest steps in the startup journey to DIY early-on. Here at PARISOMA, we believe that this doesn’t have to be the case. With a solid financial model, you will be able to foreshadow and understand potential changes, good or bad. A financial model will allow you to have structure and a plan to follow when dealing with your company’s finances. It will also act as a concrete version of the vision you have for your company; a resume if you will. Being able to trust your model and know what you need to survive and how to profit as a small…

    I've tried. The best so far has been like a retail store in a mall: rev share. I, however, have larger build-out budgets than most so that probably has been the challenge. For those with lower bars, a landlord's investment could be more feasible...maybe via lease incentives you wouldn't be able to

    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…

VargoIf you had told me a few years ago that I would be reading marketing books, I would not have believed you. But marketing turns out to be a fascinating and oddly parallel area of study for someone interested in professional communication—and it's also a vital field for me to understand due to the research study I'm currently conducting.Like any other field, marketing has differences, disagreements, and controversies. One recent fissure has been in how people define the value proposition, which…

The response has been better than I hoped.If you haven't picked up Topsight yet, this is a good time to do so: I just lowered the price of the print version from $24.99 to $19.99, making it even easier to pick the book up out of curiosity, assign it to classes, or hand it out as a party favor at a…

The answer is pretty stunning; they use professional-grade printers – those printers build items layer by layer as for the home…

    Wow, how time flies! It is hard to believe that a little more than 6 months ago I started my first day at Link Coworking. Like every typical college student, as my final year of school approached I set out looking for my next internship. I came across a posting for an Events Intern for Link Coworking and being a little familiar with coworking, I decided to apply. Having worked other internships in the past, I found myself leaving feeling like I did not take anything from the experience (but was merely a workhorse to do tasks the higher ups did not want to do).

Over the past few years, this stuffed menagerie has grown in size and variety to the point where my apartment now appears to be inhabited by an oddly-precocious preteen who has a flair for midcentury modern design, a set of overly-indulgent parents, an immature refusal to part with her training bed…
