    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…

More recently, one of our professors in the HDO program assigned it to her students. With two recommendations so close together, I decided it was time to take the book for a spin.What did I think of it?

    Service-Dominant Logic: Premises, Perspectives, PossibilitiesBy Robert F. Lusch and Stephen L. 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…

If you’re anything like me (hi, Tony here!), then you want to find a way to get your work done while also having healthy time to enjoy the summer sunshine.  We’re independents, after all, so we should be able to take advantage of our freedom to have a really great summer experience while still getting our work done. I’d love to find a way to do a healthy amount of both.

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…

    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…

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.

    Many titles have been bestowed upon our fair city over the years. According to the 2013 “Liveability” report by the Economist Intelligence Unit, Vancouver is the third best city in the world and it’s the top city in Canada. 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…

    Why this is cool: Corporations like Sprint and Coca-Cola are repurposing space to be used as a coworking space for their workers and the public. It starts as a way to give back to their local community. Local entrepreneurs and remote workers use the space to collaborate on new businesses, learn, and make new connections. Corporate workers are hesitant at first to cowork at the space but find the location change and community inspiring and this increases their creativity. It becomes a reciprocal beneficiary relationship where locals have a supportive community and corporations have an…
