Why Cities are Competing for Top Tech Talent

BY DAVID HEARD
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

David Heard is sadly accustomed to his technologist friends moving away from San Antonio. The tech scene is too small, they say. The landscape is too suburban. Is our city just going to be a nice place to retire? Or can San Antonio become a place young, educated, highly coveted professionals aspire to live in, the kind of place where the world’s talent decides to build their careers? To do this, he believes we must fight out fierce competition from other cities and attract top tech talent. To understand why tech talent is the key to a strong future, David Heard outlines how technology and tech jobs are fundamentally transforming cities and their economies.

Pimp Your Waste : un processus high-tech pour le réemploi

BY ERIC DORLEAC
@ VOL 32 ON OCT 25, 2018

Pimp Your Waste propose un processus de valorisation des matériaux en trois étapes automatisées. Le projet développe un processus qui automatise les tâches de tri, de conception et de fabrication par l’utilisation des outils numériques de notre époque. Si les technologies numériques existent déjà, c’est en les alliant à une stratégie de réemploi que Pimp Your Waste propose un projet innovant et écoresponsable. Le projet Pimp Your Waste questionne le surcyclage et le remploi du bois comme alternative pour la construction. En devenant plus rapides et moins chères, ces pratiques peuvent se démocratiser et devenir compétitives sur le marché de l’architecture et du design.
