The Importance of Design in Solving Real Problems: Featured Speaker Steve Vassallo
As hardware components like sensors and chips are getting smaller and cheaper it seems like every day a new connected product is hitting the scene. But what sets a good product apart from a great one is its ability to solve a real need for a user which is reflected in the product design. Thus the role of the Designer is increasingly important for any startup in the shaping of an idea they wish to take to market.

copperbadge needs to an RDJ Advises with this. Or just needs to know about it. 

"It’s okay to cry sometimes, Chris. Weddings. Oscar wins. The births of your children, especially good hair days."

"Thank you for validating my mortifying admissions, Robert."

"Are you going to cry right now?"

"No!"

"Because you’re having a pretty good hair day, I wouldn’t blame you."

The traumatic experiences of the First World War forced Erwin Schulhoff and many artists of his generation to re-evaluate their relationship with the culture of the past.

Erwin Schulhoff was one of the most exciting voices in the post-WWI music scene, but due to his death in the Wülzburg concentration camp, he is now remembered principally as a “holocaust composer.” 
This article, “Parables of the Old Men and the Young: The Multifarious Modernisms of Erwin Schulhoff’s String Quartets,” by Yoel Greenberg, places Schulhoff in the early 1920s, and interprets his music as a reaction to WWI, resonant with the art, poetry, and literature of the time.

Some pictures of our current exhibit at Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery in Stamford, CT. 4 artists meditate on a single issue while taking residence at the gallery for a month. My proposal seeks inspiration from the “Ladder of Citizen Participation” by Sherry Arnstein and Martin Puryear’s “Ladder for Booker T. Washington.

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back
