Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World

BY CHRIS WINSTEAD
@ VOL 12 ON APR 11, 2014

"So they say the first part of coping with your addiction is truly acknowledging that you're dependent on substance. I guess it's only fitting that we're in a church this evening, so my name is Chris and I'm addicted to socks."

In "Socktastic Adventures: Fashion in the Business World" from PechaKucha Night Bangor, ME Vol. 12, Christopher Winstead presented on a topic near and dear to his feet and sole. As he has spent the last 14 years of his professional career in the business world, Chris quickly learned that the corporate uniform of suits and ties didn’t lend themselves to a high level of creativity. Looking to add a bit of fashion into his wardrobe, Chris started looking at socks. They are both a venue for expression and an ability to add a pop or color to the board room. A huge thank you to Rebecca Krupke of Captured Moments Photography who provided her talents and skills to the images in the presentation.

What Europe could learn from nerds

BY VALENTIN CALOMME
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

The European Union is facing a crisis. A large part of the population either does not understand it, finds it intrusive, or even thinks that it is simply not needed, sometimes all of the above. Thankfully, nerds are here to help, says Valentin Calomme. Not with a magical app or piece of software, but with the wisdom of mathematics.
