Data Deluge? Upgrade Your Data Filters? No, Upgrade You Data Analysis!

Clay Shirky says welcome the Data Deluge, but improve your Data Filters

Vodpod videos no longer available.


Clay Shirky thinks the problem is filters. That has been the pat answer for as long as there has been data. However, that is not the answer. The answer to accept all the data and analyze it through better visualization. It is better to change the granularity of data and see “the big picture” to see the trends, make a hypothesis, make predictions. We have to learn induction instead of continually resorting to deduction.

There is no bad data. There is a lot of bad analysis.

Web 3.0: Debunking the Open Source Myth

capitalism

We have all been had.  There are thousands of companies out there  telling us our content has no monetary value and then using our sweat to make billions on advertising and claiming they are benevolently providing us a service.  THERE IS NO BENEVOLENCE ONLY BUSINESS.

Every post you put on the web has value.  Every keystroke, every mouse click has value.  Corporations are using it to advertise, analyze markets, sell to you.  YOU SHOULD HAVE A PIECE OF THE MONETARY PIE.

The problem is not technology.  Sending payment to everyone is damned easy.  The problem is middle men.  MIDDLE MEN MAKE THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING ARTIFICIALLY HIGH.

We can all profit.  Everything we do has worth.  We can charge for everything.  Everytime someone looks at our content we can profit.  DEAL DIRECT TO LOWER THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING, DON’T GIVE YOUR WORK AND CONTENT AWAY FOR FREE.  THE WEBSITES DON’T.  THE CARRIERS DON’T.

You have worth.  You have value.  YOU MUST BE PAID WHEN YOUR CONTENT IS DISPLAYED.

Stop being a Tube.  Stop being a Twit.  Stop being a Face.  Stop being a Space.  Stop Digging.  Stop Gurgling.  You are not children any more.  YOU ARE THE KEY.  ENJOY CAPITALISM.  DEMAND PAYMENT.

There is a Fair Global Price for everything and it is not Open Source.  THE COMMONS WILL ALWAYS BE A TRAGEDY.

ONE WORLD, FIRST WORLD.

Criticism of UML

I came across this interesting criticism of UML today: Why UML fails to add value to the design and development process.

I agree with the author that UML’s lack of integration into automated lifecycle process at both the domain end and the technology end tends to make the documentation a one time island of work.  However, I do not agree that domain specific products have to be developed.  We do not understand sytems well enough yet to make such a conclusion.

The criticism of UML’s lack of ability to generate code is one of the reasons I am in favor of the Associative Model of Data and the Sentences ADBMS at LazySoft.  The schema, form design, query design and results are all built into a single user interface that can be updated in real time and issues such as normalization and denormalization that plagues relational database integrity and performance do not exist.

We have lived in “exponential times” since the big bang (if there was one)

Induce the Past, Deduce the Future (continued)

Inductive (Analysis) Pattern:

Deductive (Design) Pattern:

This assumes a top left, row by row, to bottom right path. As you can see, induction (analysis) instead of being relegated to a single phase is a methodology in its own right.  Also it should be recognized that Induction is a bottom up process, while Deduction is top down.

Zachman Tetrads

R. Buckminster Fuller’s books reveal a characteristic of his thinking. He would always return to his simplest system, the tetrahedron, and travel on ever new tangents. I decided to look at Zachman again with a different orientation and apply tetrads.

It is important to note that each of the columns is a design perpective. The one to one column is not the real entity but a physical design perspective of the entity.
