Phoenix Author Takes Part in Library’s Author Series
Phoenix Author Takes Part in Library’s Author Series

Noted Phoenix author Matthew C. Whitaker, Ph.D., will discuss his book “Race Work” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, at the Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave., Pulliam Auditorium as part of the library’s free October Author Series.

In this biography, Whitaker explores the history of the Ragsdales’ family and how their familial traditions of entrepreneurship, professionalism, activism and “race work” helped form their activist identity and placed them in a position to help desegregate Phoenix.

Whitaker is an assistant professor of United States History, African-American Studies, and Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University. He specializes in African-American history, the African Diaspora, Civil and Human Rights, Critical Race Theory and the American West. His research focuses on African-American leadership, activism and the struggle for racial, economic and gender equality.

Books will be sold at the program and an author signing will follow.

For information on the author series or to learn more about the Phoenix Public Library, visit phoenixpubliclibrary.org or call 602-262-4636.

Top Ten Design Mistakes
Top Ten Design Mistakes
Weblog Usability: The Top Ten Design Mistakes (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox)

10. Having a Domain Name Owned by a Weblog Service
Having a weblog address ending in blogspot.com, typepad.com, etc. will soon be the equivalent of having an @aol.com email address or a Geocities website: the mark of a naïve beginner who shouldn't be taken too seriously.
Letting somebody else own your name means that they own your destiny on the Internet. They can degrade the service quality as much as they want. They can increase the price as much as they want. They can add atop your content as many pop-ups, blinking banners, or other user-repelling advertising techniques as they want. They can promote your competitor's offers on your pages. Yes, you can walk, but at the cost of your loyal readers, links you've attracted from other sites, and your search engine ranking.

The longer you stay at someone else's domain name, the higher the cost of going independent. Yes, it's tempting to start a new weblog on one of the services that offer free accounts. It's easy, it's quick, and it's obviously cheap. But it only costs $8 per year to get your personal domain name and own your own future. As soon as you realize you're serious about blogging, move it away from a domain name that's controlled by somebody else. The longer you delay, the more pain you'll feel when you finally make the move.
