Am playing around with Gephi and this is what my FB network looks like. At the moment I am enjoying “99 Days of Freedom” from facebook, so it’s nice to see you all - even if you are small coloured dots (waves).

The big giant hairball in the middle? Well, that represents a big chunk of people who worked at TLE over the years. It was quite fun to explore this - see who is connected to who; what groups exist.

Pop Quiz - the largest number of connections is 48. Can you guess who this is? Here are some clues. He lives in the UK. He is also the only person I know who still works at TLE…Can you guess?  

(I am taking the social network analysis course at the moment on coursera. It’s brilliant!)


If you could measure everything…would you?

Calling all trackers, quantifiers, analysers and creative counters.

Science Gallery is seeking proposals for its upcoming exhibition LIFELOGGING LAB, which will open in February 2015.

From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING LAB will ask artists, designers and philosophers ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualising, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.

We’re particularly interested in proposals on the quantified self and other ‘LifeLogging’ movements, sensors and biomedical diagnostics, wearable and mobile technology, personal and social data visualisation, consumer sports sensors, explorations of data measurement and sharing and ideas for logging the presently unquantifiable – happiness, love, beauty, aesthetics etc.

Sometimes, the work I do requires a bit extra in the “graphic department”. I’ve had a nice time working on a project over this last week for a client and old friend. He always works on interesting projects and he’s got a good way of bringing to life a whole lot of information into a concise presentation. When I work with him I get to illustrate graphically his work.  It’s normally qualitative, so no charts or graphs…very interesting work. This is a just a tiny part of what we’ve been working on.

Workplace Safety

A little while ago I did this work for Bauer and Safety Matters; a publication for the AWU. Work Safety is still an important issue, and Unions play a key role in making sure that workers have the right information and environment to do their job safely. I wonder how many of these deaths could have been easily prevented? I also hope that Unions stay strong in Australia in a post Royal Commission world. The commission is witch hunt to derail union support, and the corruption in the construction industry spreads much further than just the unions (um…I mean we are talking about the construction industry…). But hopefully this will give the unions a massive shake-up and shake-out, and they can focus on where they are still really needed; workers rights

As a lover of both knitting and data graphics, I was pretty intrigued by the story of Shaun the Sheep and even happier when I read the Guardian Data Blog article about how many jumpers you could probably get from Shaun’s 23.5kg fleece.

I’ve essentially nicked all of Nick Evershed’s research and re-jigged it. Thankyou sir.

But wowzers - that’s some productive fleece. I guess that’s what happens when you run wild without a hair cut for 6 years, and something I sort of aspire to, as I’m growing my own hair. Inspirational stuff Shaun. Inspirational stuff.


Thanks wordmark.it

ICAC? I can barely keep up. But thanks to the ABC, they help you unravel the tangled, grubby mess that is NSW State politics…

Great piece of work.

I like to share my love around it seems

Just a little something - part of a project I’m working on. 

The Pace of Technology Adoption is Speeding Up - Rita McGrath

The chart above, created by Nicholas Felton of the New York Times, shows how long it took various categories of product, from electricity to the Internet, to achieve different penetration levels in US households.  It took decades for the telephone to reach 50% of households, beginning before 1900.  It took five years or less for cellphones to accomplish the same penetration in 1990.  As you can see from the chart, innovations introduced more recently are being adopted more quickly.  By analogy, firms with competitive advantages in those areas will need to move faster to capture those opportunities that present themselves.
