  2. New Books in Science, Technology, and Society - McKenzie Wark, “Molecular Red: Theory for the Anthropocene” (Verso, 2015) | Listen via Stitcher Radio On Demand

    Listen to New Books in Science, Technology, and Society episodes free, on demand. McKenzie Wark’s new book begins and ends with a playful call: “Workings of the world untie! You have a win to world!” Molecular Red: Theory for the Anthropocene (Verso, 2015) creates a conversation between work from two very different Soviet and American contexts. After guiding readers through the work and theories of Alexander Bogdanov, whose focus on the importance of labor in organizing knowledge forms a central thread through the book as a whole, Wark traces some of those notions in the writing of novelist and utopian Andrey Platonov. The second half of the book extends the conversation into science studies, beginning in a chapter that considers the work of Feyerabend, Haraway, Barad, and Edwards in light of Bogdanov and Platonov’s approaches to labor and knowledge, and continuing into a chapter devoted to Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy. The result is a fascinating treatment of the centrality of labor and the importance of the not-necessarily-human to understanding and theorizing the Anthropocene. (As Wark reminds us, Labor is the mingling of many things, most of them not human.) The entire book is highly recommended, and for the STS-minded among us the third chapter of the book would make an especially useful assignment in a discussion group or seminar devoted to contemporary theory and/in STS.

  4. 229: Rapidfire 67 - ShopTalk

    We’re answering your questions right after Dave finishes grinding his gears about SaaS. Programming after 30? Development environment possibilities? Getting content from clients? rems vs ems? Angular vs React metaphors?

    Q & A

    8:03 Foundation is specifically built with Sass, and heavily leverages imports for each feature. Basically, if you don’t need the feature it is up to the developer to not include it.

    19:00 I’m starting to finally understand the concepts of Angular and React. However, I’m struggling to understand when I would reach for one over the other. Could you give me an example of a use case for Angular and a use case for React?

    28:30 What’s the deal with rem vs. em?

    38:57 I wondered if you’d ever considered doing a show about ‘older’ people making the jump into tech. By older I mean 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, as I’m aware that in tech 30+ is often considered old, which I find hilarious!

    49:00 Any tips on process for getting content from clients? We’ve tried stuff like dropbox folders, master word docs, etc. Getting it all wrangled into a clear deliverable from them feels harder than it should be.

    54:50 I thought a very cool thing about Wes Bos’ React course (which was great) was the first video on getting your dev environment set up. I’d love to hear if you guys have locked into a workflow to solve this particular issue, or just generally if there are parts of your workflow that you think are cool and are worth sharing.

  5. Adam Grant: The surprising habits of original thinkers | TED Talk |

    How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they’re the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."
