Lucire issue 30 This issue has turned out beautifully. It took longer to produce than normal, but the result is well worth it. It holds together very well. You can download the tablet apps and PDF editions, or order it in print—more info here.
Tip for all my student readers: if you’re too lazy to use a bibliography creator like NoodleBib or RefWorks, let Google generate your bibliography entries for you. All you have to do is google the article/book title in Google Scholar, click “cite” at the bottom of the search result, and copy either the MLA, APA, or Chicago cite into your word document.
This is literally how I got through college.
More Google bollocks None of these examples would work at our firm. I can’t make sense of the ones above. Why is Jennifer Preston’s name cited differently by MLA and Chicago compared to David Goodman’s? Is there some kind of sexist rule? What day was the ninth volume of 2012 of The New York Times published? I’m not sure any of these conventions would abbreviate a newspaper article to just 9 (2012).
I’m not insisting that our style is perfect, but it would allow the article to be found, provide fairness for male and female authors, and give a proper date, not just ‘9’.

The intellectual integrity and infinite order of the universe obviously are vastly greater than man. Man is an invention within it. What one did about this understanding would have to be through design. I decided I must not be a persuader, but a doer.

BoF for Webby I remember when Lucire was a finalist in the fashion category many years ago. Before Business of Fashion even posted this, I had already voted for them. It’s one of the better sites out there on the topic.
