“IS YOUR PERSONAL TECHNOLOGY HELPING OR HINDERING YOU?”

Smart, mobile, social. Personal technology is all around us…and on us. These tools are fun, convenient, and even indispensable, but are we experiencing trade-offs and drawbacks? Are we aware of unintended effects that are keeping us from living and working more fully? Join us as we examine our current understanding of how personal technology impacts us and discuss how we can evaluate and manage our technology to get the most out of it…and life.

Cynthia Cheng Correia is Managing Director of Knowledge inForm, a competitive intelligence consultancy, and an instructor at the Simmons College School of Information Science. She is also a founder of The Work-Life Collaborative, which helps individuals and families enhance their work-life quality and harmony.

“RICHARD POWERS – THE SURREAL LIFE OF A SCIENCE FICTION ARTIST”
Richard Powers, who used the name Gorman Powers on his non-commercial work, had his first appearance on Ballantine paperbacks in the 1950's.  His career spanned over four decades during which he produced jacket illustrations for some 1,200 science fiction novels. Now he is widely regarded as the single most influential artist in the history of paperback illustrative art and is also considered to be an artist of great influence. Richard Powers is among the Society of Illustrators’ newest Hall of Fame inductees, along with Beatrix Potter and others. Since 1958, The Society Of Illustrators has elected to its Hall of Fame artists recognized for their "distinguished achievement in the art of illustration."

Kathy Powers Sherry, a 20 year Wayland resident, and CUNY American Studies Professor Richard Gid Powers, the artist's children, will discuss their father’s prolific career as both one of the top Science Fiction cover illustrators of the twentieth century and a fine artist, as well as, of course, a dad.
