technological antagonism

by fernando.doylet In reply to Dissertation Experience

The consultant did not want to consider my approach of asking for a fair evaluation, to tell me the total I should send in advance for each paper, instead of sending what I believe is the correct amount. Following the recommendation to ?talk? half hour, I sent half of the ...<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.doylet.org/DBlog/?p=12">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Reorganizing the previous idea paper ...<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://www.doylet.org/DBlog/?p=15">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
