Why Cities are Competing for Top Tech Talent

@ 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.

Love is Blind Contour

For the past 9 months, Kate Michaud has been drawing blind contours (line art drawn without looking down at the paper) of every man with whom she's gone on a date. Every week she posts a drawing in her online blog.  Thought not a visual artist, her co-workers - who are graphic designers - persuaded her to do this project, and it has snowballed into something bigger than she imagined.

Keeping Tech in Check

@ VOL 27 ON APR 27, 2018

Ben Greeley presents techniques how people can create balance in their lives between the digital and natural worlds to return to a time when life wasn't dictated by smartphones and digital distractions. Working from home and being guilty of contributing to the creation of this digital universe, I plan to review techniques I use to create work/life balance to ensure I'm returning to a healthy natural mental state instead of being 'plugged in' 24/7. For a general narrative I'm thinking of walking through my upbringing and how connected I currently am to the digital world in my working life and walking through simple yet powerful ways to make sure that digital world isn't overrunning my life.
