The Austrians are back in town! Well, and one Texan. What happens when two Austrians and a (bunch of) Texan(s) walk into a bar? We get to learn all the gossip on Radio Shack, human development, and corporate communications!

This month's talks:

“Tandy versus Radio Shack: A Mostly True Tale” by Paul Schreiber

When Paul was at Tandy, he designed products sold in Radio Shack stores. It was the '80s, and it was, shall we say, an interesting experience. These are some lessons learned. Management and Sales and Engineering – oh, my!

Paul has worked for 11 different companies, designing electronic products. He was only fired once. Paul has a MSEE, 12 patents, and a toy poodle named Nico.

“From Caveman to Start-Up Bro: Clare W. Graves’ Value Systems and Their Application for Our Daily Lives” by L. Sophie Zechmeister

Once upon a time (in the 1960s), in a kingdom far, far away (a college campus in upstate New York) a prince (ok, a psychology professor) discovered the key to understanding these strange creatures called humans that roamed through the kingdoms. Fairytales aside, what Dr. Graves (our prince) developed was a model that explained adult human development, as well as societal development at large. His seven value systems can be used to explain issues ranging from U.S. partisan conflict, or the surprising sustainability of authoritarian regimes, to why you and your roommate keep arguing about the toilet paper (and they are just not getting it!).

Having just completed her degrees in International Business and Comparative Literature, Sophie is travelling the world and following her passions of observing human behavior and cultures across the globe — often with the help of the theory of value systems, which she has studied extensively.
