Life. Woman. Science. Visualization. Magic.

‘Science’ is just one of the 5 things that caught my eyes and ears this past week that I wanted to share with you.


Sometimes things just come together in my feed. First I saw this cartoon from Gaping Void …


and then I read this article from Vice.

For 18- to 29-year-olds, real wages are down and living expenses are up, but fresh batches of transplants keep coming here anyway.

Art replicating society – or the other way round?

Social Workflow

From time to time people ask me what I mean about Tumblr being my curation / aggregation space (see above menu). The fact is I use a really cool little service called IF (used to be IFTTT – If This – Then That) … that essentially allows me to connect actions on different networks to create flows.

This is how it works in my world … and always thinking about how to add in more … unfortunately Pinterest has a walled garden approach – so no APIs to use for the guys at IF – but as I find new services that I CAN use  – I work out a way to include in the flow.

Social Workflow

It all starts at Feedly – which is my RSS feed aggregator  – i might tweet directly from there – more passing interest – than looking for curation. If it is interesting – I safe for later – which automatically drops it into my Instapaper account.

Then – whether I am in Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo or Instapaper – as I post / like into that network – it gets dropped into my Tumblr feed – which auto tweets accordingly. Also – if I am in Tumblr and I like stuff – it auto posts a Tweet aswell.

Meanwhile, any tweet with a link is captured for posterity into my Delicious Account.

Notice – I don’t auto route this blog – or my linkedIN feeds – and of course – you KNOW I am not on Facebook 🙂


Managing Complex Change

Managing complex change

I posted this to twitter and linkedIN yesterday – it seemed to resonate.

Another version – with supporting article is here. Which includes a better image, but not better clarity .. IMHO. There are other examples where the word ‘Resistance’ is replaced with ‘Gradual Change’. I think ‘Resistance’ is the right word. I need to find the RIGHT diagram – which I think is still the top one.


Three Legs Of A Stool

Those of you that track this blog will know that I occasionally post pieces that are flagged – ‘three legs of a stool’. This happened to catch my eye today – which for me captures the challenge – isolation. The ‘three legs of a stool’ concept work great – but as you layer and layer and layer – well – them you get into the complexity – and arguably lose sight of the essence.
