Tony Curmudgeon O'seland's insight:

This makes me wonder if the digitization of graphic literature will further degrade the field.  Physical ownership of graphic literature has become a vague concept these days, and if I read the buyers agreements on digital copies, you don't ever actually own the copy, you get to view it a set number of times.  While these glasses may make being a Hipster seem cool, do they actually serve a purpose for those who read, or are they just another gimmick to sell tech?

The Dissertation Can No Longer Be Defended | The Literature of the Graphic Word | Scoop.it
Sentiment is growing to move beyond the traditional, book-length monograph to something that might actually help graduate students in their careers.

Empathy Map Your Way to Relevant Messages

Empathy Map Your Way to Relevant Messages | The Literature of the Graphic Word | Scoop.it
Get to know what the folks you want to engage think, do, care about and hate via personas and this new Empathy Map tool.

 

The  Empathy Map is a proven framework for strong connections with the folks you need to act—to give, to volunteer, to take whatever action you need to move your mission forward.

 

The Map highlights key elements of your supporters’ environment, behavior, concerns and aspirations, enabling you to hone your messages, tone and channels to what’s most important to them (and so most likely to be digested, and acted on). That’s relevance, and relevance rules.

 

=========================

The  Empathy Map is a proven framework
