new book alert

I just came across this fun review of Startup – a debut novel by Doree Shafrir on what happens in the workplace and what people do about it. It sounds very entertaining. Maybe a good summer read?

Notes on the sharing economy – the phenomenon we have been discussing this semester and which we will return to on Wednesday.

on women in start-ups

Before our visit to betahaus next Monday, have a look at this article about the gender gap and gender dynamics in start-up communities (or: how to pitch an idea for a period-tracking app to a room full of horrified male investors).

When we talked about affective labor yesterday, I mentioned several theorists of affect, from Spinoza to Ngai, but did I tell you that some of these books have the most amazing covers?
