Liquid Stranger at the Waterfront Tavern /\ April 25
18+

On April 25 Liquid Stranger is going to be bringing about as much Bone Crunching BASS than our laser and light packed venue can hold.

LIQUID STRANGER - Rather than touting the typical electronic dance music trappings of hyper excess and ego, he chooses to slip back into the shadows, allowing his music to do all the talking and listeners to do a whole lot of wondering. As a result, that music has sent shockwaves throughout the entire genre. Over the course of six full-length albums and a myriad of single releases, he's yielded worldwide hits as diverse as "Ripple", which claimed #1 on Beatport's Download Chart, and "Bombaclaad Star", which reigned supreme as the hub's #1 reggae track of 2011. "Shake My Ass" dominated the drum 'n' bass chart at #1, while his third album Private Riot has become a dubstep classic in its own right, solidifying him as a trailblazer.

However, he's bringing two worlds together into one on his forthcoming seventh album, The Renegade Crusade. Dubstep sorcery and Rastafarian grooves collide and cascade within a genre the dance floor has never seen before. The age of The Renegade begins now.
About this alchemical concoction on his forthcoming 2013 effort, he reveals, "It's my attempt to put everything I've done in my musical career into some type of synthesis. It can be hard and intense, but it can also be beautiful and trippy. This symbiosis is natural. As humans we all have different emotions. The music reflects those emotions. I'm looking to combine all of those catalytic experiences."

Emerging Security Threats: Employees and Mobile Devices

Emerging Security Threats:  Employees and Mobile Devices

Employees are being inundated with emails, texts and other communications trying to get them to open attachments or click on links that will infect your network with viruses and malware. In addition, as more and more employees use mobile devices to enhance their efficiency, it is very likely that the device will be lost or hacked. The question your company will have to answer is what type of data was on the device and did you apply the necessary security controls to ensure that the data is safe.  This presentation will provide best practices on how to educate your employees to ensure they are doing their best to protect your data as well as discuss the risk of mobile devices and the types of controls that you can put in place to protect them.

The Collaborative Workspace Training Series: Western Mass Training

The Collaborative Workspace Training Series 

Are you interested in developing a collaborative workspace in your community?

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is pleased to offer trainings for prospective collaborative work space developers, operators, potential funders, and public officials to learn more about the development of collaborative workspace across the state.

Collaborative workspaces are environments that inspire collaboration, explorations, and experimentation among tenants working in the innovation and creative economy. Collaborative workspaces, including co-working and makerspaces, often feature an open floor plan, various sizes of community meeting spaces, shared resources and other features that encourage interactions among tenants.

Learn directly from an experienced developer, Jen Faigel, who will frame key challenges and opportunities involved in creating and managing collaborative workspace environments.

 

Western Mass Training

May 15, 9am-12pm

Location: Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center

100 Bigelow St Holyoke, MA 01040

 

This training will provide:

• An overview of the various models of shared spaces—including makerspaces, co-working spaces, incubators, accelerators, multi-tenant spaces, etc.;

• An understanding of the economic benefits of shared spaces for the businesses that use them, the operators that manage them, the building owners that lease to them, and the communities where they’re located;

• A discussion of the market analysis and other feasibility work involved in developing a concept for a shared space;

• An overview of the marketing and leasing process;

• An overview of key physical design and permitting issues to consider when developing shared space; and

• An overview of the development and operating budgets for various models.

 

ADDITIONAL EVENTS

Kick-Off Event

Join us on May 6 in Somerville to launch the collaborative workspace training series by getting inspired through a tour of two amazing collaborative spaces: Artisans Asylum and Green Town Labs.

More about Collaborative Workspaces

Collaborative workspaces are shared work environments that inspire collaboration, exploration, and experimentation among tenants working across the innovation and creative economy. Collaborative workspaces, including co-working and makerspaces, often feature an open floor plan, various sizes of shared meeting spaces, and other features that distribute business overhead costs while encouraging tenants to connect and interact. These shared spaces might be equipped with tools or office equipment, be places to read or host meetings or events or to prepare or enjoy meals, or spaces that make casual interactions among users easier and more frequent.  In collaborative environments, there is a focus on spaces that hold two or more people, rather than isolating individuals in separate, private offices.

Often collaborative workspaces are hubs of economic activity, becoming headquarters for many small and innovative businesses and creating a focal point for the clustering of creative and innovative businesses. These spaces are not only about the space itself, but center around the development of a community of innovation that is inspired by the tenants of the space. The intermingling of different businesses, industries and individuals is often fostered by community through events, community initiatives and joint projects.

               

 Examples of Collaborative Spaces and Hosts of Launch Event

Artisan’s Asylum

The Artisan Asylum represents a 25,000 square foot cluster of physical/manufacturing entrepreneurs.  Its mission is to support and promote the teaching, learning and practicing of craft of all varieties.  For a nominal fee—individuals and small businesses are offered a variety of daily, weekly, and monthly rate plans—members are granted access to an array of manufacturing equipment and facilities, as well as affordable, publicly-accessible classes offered by local artisans. Learn more: artisansasylum.com

Green Town Labs

Green Town Labs enables a vibrant community of entrepreneurs to work on their visions and to provide access to the space, resources, and funding that allows their early-stage companies thrive. In Somerville,  just 3.5 miles from downtown Boston, Green Town Labs offers 24,000 sq. ft. of prototyping lab and co-located office space, a shared machine shop and electronics shop, immersion in a growing community of energy and clean technology entrepreneurs, and on-site events and programs designed to enable start-ups to rapidly grow their networks and their companies. Learn more: greentownlabs.org

Jen Faigel, Presenter

Jen Faigel is co-founder and principal of Urban Idea Lab, a real estate and community economic development consulting practice focused on developing creative solutions to complex challenges facing the development of space in Massachusetts.
