SXSW Nate Silver and Stephen Baker

Nate Silver is the person who used statistical analysis to predict the Obama win -- months before he was viewed as a potential front leader.  Silver was interviewed by Stephen Baker, author of The Numerati.

Here is my recording of that interview ...

SXSW 2009 - Opening Remarks

I always enjoy SXSW -- the energy, the people, the talent.  Here is a recording I did of opening remarks by Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos!  Zappos has unbelievable customer service, and Tony shared information about the company's culture and values and how those items relate to their business model.

Austin VizThink Community Meet Up

Great discussion last night by Dillon McKinsey Robinson about dream charting.  I volunteered to have a dream analyzed - cheez, it was in front of everyone!!!  Decided to be vulnerable and transparent.  There were a few tense moments for me but I survived.  And Dillon's intrepretation was spot on.

I was particularly interested in hearing Dillon's thoughts about archetypes and imagery in dreams.  Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar.

If you would like to be invited to the next community meet up, just give me a shout and I will add your name to the mail list.

Gen V

Generation V
The online behavior and attitudes of people from all walks of life are blending together, cutting across all of the traditional demographics and giving rise to a new group called "Generation Virtual," according to Gartner, and information technology research and advisory group.

Unlike previous generations, Generation V is not defined by age, gender, social glass, or geography. Instead it is based on an increasing preference for the use of digital media channels to discover information, build knowledge, and share insights.

I am all over Generation V. Sometimes I am a contributor, adding to a conversation started by some else. Sometimes I am a creator, providing original content such as my newsletter or this blog. Frequently I am an opportunist in that I'll further a conversation while walking through watching from the sidelines.

Here are maps I created for a World Cafe event for UNT in April. The subject of the World Cafe was Diversity and Inclusion. Three speakers asked thought provoking questions which were then discussed by participants.
