It was called the "Breakfast for Champions," the annual
fundraiser to benefit the Commonwealth Institute, a non-profit
organization that helps women develop entrepreneurial skills and
expertise. On this particular June morning in 2001, more than
1,000 women gathered in the grand ballroom of Boston's Fairmont
Copley Hotel to network and to honor women entrepreneurs.
Virtually the entire "who's who" of the women's business
community was there, as well as investors, lawyers, and others
who work with and support women-led businesses.
Structured systems analysis and design method (SSADM) (originally released as methodology) is a systems approach to the analysis and design of information systems. SSADM was produced for the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (now Office of Government Commerce), a UK government office concerned with the use of technology in government, from 1980 onwards.
The emergence of fixed cinemas coincided which a huge
growth phase in the business in general; film production increased
greatly, and film distribution developed into a special activity, often
managed by large film producers. However, until about 1914, besides the
cinemas, films also continued to be combined with live entertainment in
vaudeville and other theatres (Musser 1990; Allen 1980).
We can thus place the take-off of the cinema industry between
1905 and 1907. In these years it developed its own retail outlets and did
not depend exclusively on theatres and travelling showmen.
Sixth, the concept of projection was important for motion pictures,
although in the original Edison-invention, projection was lacking. In 1851,
onwards, when the projection of photographic slides became possible,
the magic lantern became wildly popular, and the industry started to grow
quickly. (Michaelis, 1958; Musser 1990: 30-36).
A few specialised British and French slide suppliers dominated the
trade. They collected photographs from all over the world in London or
Paris, and distributed them quickly again to all corners of the globe.
