Sentiment Analysis

Inspired by a very poorly presented Survey, I stared to delve into how to better present the data as a pitch for that potential client. As per usual, this raised more questions then it answered and I started to look at the detailed workflow to process survey results and present them.

What quickly became obvious was there was a need to augment the survey outcome data by tying it back to the original quest for knowledge/insight, participants reasons (dare I say motivation)
for engagement in this quest and other sources of data to better elicit knowledge/insight.

Not so quickly came my own insight into this process, that there are three main drivers for this engagement;

Hello world! KS Back Again

Welcome to WordPress. This is your 1st . Edit/delete it, then start writing!

This is useful as it recorded when the site came back up again. I have manually added the older posts from the Wayback Machine and going through my thought process to find my original theme.

I eventually remembered it was a numbered theme, then I think it was a default theme … luckily WordPress picks a default theme yearly and I fluked onto starting this blog on a year which I liked the default theme!

Welcome to KS Themed Twenty-Fifteen Mark 2.

Half Time … Change Sides – or Monthly Planning

Well not only is it the middle of the Olympics but its the middle of my Month too. I has someone ask me what I did at the weekend earlier in the month, to which I replied some what guiltily that I just hung out at home and quickly added I did hit a gig at The Commons on Friday night.

This did prompt the thought of what actually have I been doing with my time and what about the rest of the month. To this end, I hit my schedule view of my calendar and manually made a weekly visualisation that tickled my fancy at the time. A more object oriented version I guess.

Once I did this to not only alleviate my guilt factor of having a weekend off, I soon realised I don’t have very much free time. In fact, barely enough to take advantage of my co-working space.

I applied colours by week obviously. Rectangle to keep track of when I planned to attend my co-working space and rounded rectangles when out and about elsewhere. Thicker boarders for when I am in Sydney.

Initially, I limited the visualisation to the working week and the calendar month but then soon extended to five full 7 day weeks. (well it will when I finish organising Sept).

What I like about this over a conventional calendar monthly view is the structure and additional information I am drawing upon through colour and shape.  The big take how is how much of my time I am spending on networking, the return on that investment and balance of productive work I should be pursing.

In addition to this, I did get a post from my Jawbone Move that I am still amazingly getting enough if somewhat irregular sleep.

FreeMind Mind Maps

I have used FreeMind for years to gets some of the clutter in my mind into a bit more structured form on paper for consumption of others.

FreeMindDesktop

While I have always loved doing this on the desktop and it is actually the easiest way to work, what I have missed is some mobile access to tweak or view mind maps. However I have come across two iOS apps to help in this regard.

FREEMINDLITE (VIEWER)
FreeMindLite View

This app is a very basic FreeMind viewer. FreeMind files are uploaded to the iphone view a web interface from your desktop.

MINDGO 2 (EDITOR)
MinDgo 2 View

This is a text heirachical view of the mind map that allows you to add and edit nodes. It can transfer files via Dropbox or the iTunes File Manager. Not visual but you can fiddle a brain storm on the train going home.Now neither of these mobile solutions offer an easy or synchronous experience but both are useful for quick views and small tweaks.

re:Design Thinking #7

I attended an event at ThoughtWorks in Sydney for the Sydney Design Thinking Meetup group re:Design. The speaker, Alvaro Márquez (Head of Service Design, Experience Strategy, R&D at Australian Broadcasting Corporation) was more of an interviewer trying to elicit a conversation on what Design Thinking means to each of the 70+ people attending personally.

reDesign#7


Well as personally as you can get in a group that large!

To that end I have put up a survey to get some more input from the group. All results are public and available to be viewed upon completion of the survey (make sure to bookmark the link or contact me with any problems).

I made the following notes during the talk on Asus VivoTab 8 using Microsoft OneNote 2016 on Windows 8.1 (a story for another time);

  • Design is the manifestation of intent. Not all solutions are designed.
  • Is a design approach fit for purpose. ROI. Efficiency.
  • Human centred design or no human participation in solution.
  • Complex environments is cause by previous designs & exacerbating/solving the wrong solutions.
WHAT NEW MISTAKES DID YOU DO LAST YEAR?

  • Assume communication has occurred.
  • Scaling design before its required
WHO IS REALLY IN CHARGE AND HOW MUCH YOU ARE WORTH?

WHAT DOES COMPETITIVE SALARY AND DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT REALLY MEAN?
  • Its a privileged position to live in. Stage of life.
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH FAILURE & CONFLICT?
  • Timing. Embrace the failure and working a way forward. Doesn’t remove the judgement. Your body knows before your brain does? Excuses rather then admitting its a failure. Part of the human condition. Fail in new ways
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A MENTOR?
  • Same values. Two way conversation. Challenges you with questions.
WHAT’S THE RIGHT WAY TO GET FIRED?
  • Plan it. Inevitable. Make it east for your boss.

  • Most managers cant fire. New hatchet man.
  • There are different ways to solve problems by upsetting people or a single cause

Lucas Mara spoke about his and his family’s life experiences at the end of discussion and what I took home was that;

  • Most people tend to always want things you don’t have overlooking what you have.
  • Community support is always there just waiting to be tapped and rise to the forefront during times of crisis and challenge.
