Author points out his view of the current landscape of fashion tech startups:
the biggest flaw I see is that these “Internet entrepreneurs” fail to understand how the Internet will fundamentally transform the fashion industry, not just provide another access point to buy something.
Author suggest some ideas where entrepreneurs can make a innovative difference:

Main point of the article:
“[The broad question can imply] Do you have control over what you do? Where are you in the hierarchy of your company? Are you allowed to be creative in your job? Does your job give you status, professionally and personally? and so on.”
She quotes some notable authors who have written about this divide of how a profession fits in with identity, including Renata Adler, author of The Last Days of a New Yorker
There are many ways, in the contemporary world, in which people who have never met meet, appraise, and identify one another. Accents, clothes, how much they spend, airline class in which they travel, people whom they know, universities they have attended, things more subtle and ineffable. Nothing, for Americans at least, seems more immediate than institutional affiliation, the place where they work, and in what capacity. Among jobs, in those days, there was no qualification for meeting people that seemed, everywhere, less subject to question than working for a respected newspaper or magazine.
The conclusion of the article states that one should be able to distinguish work from personal interests. An identity is not wholy reliant on one’s work.
Producing good work has many benefits, and it certainly contributes to a stronger sense of identity and purpose. But fullness of self is about more than that. It’s about those ancillary but more direct questions: What are our interests? What are our values? Where did we come from, and where are we now? All of these things are qualities that can develop in tandem with work, but they’d probably develop even if we had a job and not a career.
I’m building Gilt’s new Android app and a good portion of the website is an Android WebView. As you may or may not know, this WebView uses the default Android Internet Browser to render webpages. You probably know this app best by its logo in the lower right hand corner of this screenshot:
When you use Google Chrome on the Android device, inspection is very straightforward — I’ll cover this in a later post. But for Android Internet Browser, there is not to my knowledge a good way to inspect and manipulate the DOM.
The tool that bridged my device to an inspector tool is Adobe Inspect. To get going, you have to install 3 components:
1. Adobe Inspect on your computer: http://html.adobe.com/edge/inspect/
2. Google Chrome Extension Adobe Inspect: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adobe-edge-inspect/ijoeapleklopieoejahbpdnhkjjgddem?hl=en
3. Google Play Store Adobe Inspect: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.shadow.android&hl=en
Once you have installed everything, connect your Android device to your computer and make sure you’re on the same WiFi. On your Android Device, open Adobe Inspect and click the plus sign in the upper-right hand corner to get to this screen:
Get your ip address from your computer and enter it in Adobe Inspect on your Android Device. If you skip ahead, you can find your ip address on your computer by opening Google Chrome and clicking on the Adobe Inspect icon in the nav bar — you’ll see it there as well. After you input your ip address into the Android device, you’ll receive this screen:
Now, open Google Chrome and open the url of your choice with the Adobe Inspect extension enabled. In the upper right hand corner, you’ll see the Adobe Inspect icon with a green plus sign.
Click on this icon to reveal a menu that displays your computer, your IP address, and your device name.
Enter the Passcode you received from your Android device.
Now that you’re connected, click on this button next to your device name:
Then, a new window should open that looks like this:
You can see that this is a standard Google Chrome inspector with the name of your device and the url that is currently being inspected. Click on this link and then click on Elements.
Here, you have a standard inspection workflow similar to what you would use for the full screen experience. You can use the console and other features in a more limited manner to what you would use on the full screen experience. And, Adobe Inspect will highlight what DOM elements are being inspected on the device:
There is much more you can do but, hopefully, you’re now set up to debug the Android Internet Browser (not that you needed to debug anything in the first place).
And in writing, it is often getting written out as slash, even in electronically mediated communication, where one might expect the quicker punctuation mark (/) rather than the five-letter word slash.
Slash is clearly a word to watch. Slash I do mean word, not punctuation mark. The emergence of a new conjunction/conjunctive adverb (let alone one stemming from a punctuation mark) is like a rare-bird sighting in the world of linguistics: an innovation in the slang of young people embedding itself as a function word in the language. This use of slash is so commonplace for students in my class that they almost forgot to mention it as a new slang word this term. That young people have integrated innovative slash into their language while barely noticing its presence is all the more reason that conjunctive slash might have staying power."
Great question! I recommend you to read through Quora as a first step, where many UI/UX designers write their tips: http://www.quora.com/Becoming-a-UX-Designer
From there, you’ll have long list of recommended reads. If you have any specific questions after that, feel free to ask me!
Of the patients sampled, more than 30 percent claimed no specific religious affiliation yet still saw the same benefits in treatment if their belief in a higher power was rated as moderately or very high.
Patients with “no” or only “slight” belief in God were twice as likely not to respond to treatment as patients with higher levels of belief.
Investigators believe the study demonstrates that a belief in God is associated with improved treatment outcomes in psychiatric care.
“More centrally, our results suggest that belief in the credibility of psychiatric treatment and increased expectations to gain from treatment might be mechanisms by which belief in God can impact treatment outcomes.”"
