Been a While

Thus far, the blog has turned out to be my collection of links that track journalistic trends on changes in information management.
Be on the lookout soon for more affirmative opinions about the state of information overflow, and links to useful tools to manage sense-making on the web.

Of late, I can report that I’ve been occupying my time getting to:

  1. understand deductive databases through the use of Concept Base, to support Smart Grid management concerns
  2. explore web architecture by revisiting XSL design–courtesy of Bob Boiko’s course
  3. administer a local network node, and tour Ubuntu desktop configuration
  4. configured WAMP and Eclipse workspaces
  5. explored HTML5 stylesheets
  6. build an objective Indicators list (normalizing a vocabulary) in support of and its National Happiness Index effort, to map survey results to agency programs–making it easier to support social policy decisions based on interest group input
  7. absorbed “Success Built to Last”, “The 4-hour Workweek”, “Rocket Surgery Made Easy”, “A First Rate Tragedy”, “Predictably Irrational”, “Beautiful Data”, “Into The Jungle”, “The Code Book”, revisited “HTML for The World Wide Web”
  8. digging into online surveys, card sorts, MySQL, apps, usability testing and collective intelligence

Yea…, and some job searches here and there… It’s all Busy. It’s all very GooD!!

Along the way, my prescient consideration goes to the job search. Otherwise, plan B is coming along just beautifully! Besides working out how I can advise the initiatives I hold dear, I am setting the baseline for a retailing advisory enterprise I’ve been researching; and, of course, making time to hang out with my Boys!
