Icons: System States

AnarKey-Control-States

I have been working to define system states and come up with an iconic representation for those states.  They are the above representations of equality.

AnarKey-Control-States-Graph

This graph is based on the interpretation of the Greek concept of theatre.  Primarily Aristolean.

AnarKey-Control-States-Sine

The above is the same set of states as a sine wave function.  I have added two additional states to deal with dimensionality (w, x, y, z).  I also shuffled the prefixes to be more consistent.

English tends to use prefixes without structure.

In my previous post I was thinking about the fundamental components of a business.  Now I want to think about the fundamental contexts and the four dimensions of each context.

Over the next few posts I will be exploring each of these contexts and dimensions.  Personally, I think current data warehouse design is a load of bullshit.  Relational business intelligence is an oxymoron.
