Reality check: intelligence agencies have been using social network analysis since the 1990s
SEPTEMBER 28, 2013

Cognitive Task Analysis
SEPTEMBER 19, 2011
A technique for doing that is Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA). If you’ve got performances that absolutely have to be right, you’ll want to do the analysis ala CTA, and use it to decide what really needs to be in training, checklists , etc. While I argue strongly for stepping away more frequently from formally structured learning, not least because we overuse it, there are times when it is crucial.

AUGUST 2, 2011
Among the tools the successful seeker of government funding might choose to employ: linguistic cues, patterns of information flow, topic trend analysis, sentiment detection and opinion mining.

Wisconsin Elections Analysis
AUGUST 28, 2011
August 9, night of the local recall. We lose big. GOP spends $30 million on just one rural senate district race. Yet the energy and spirit at the "losing" headquarters is so positive, you get the sense we won. August 10, day after the recalls of Republicans. Major depression.
Wisconsin Recall Analysis
JUNE 8, 2012
Too early for a rationale analysis of the Wisconsin recall, but here's initial thoughts. Wisconsin the big loser, as the state continues its downward economic path. The brain drain will continue to cost the state its best young talent. -No No clear impact on other elections. Tea Party still strong. Unclear whether the loss is a victory or long term loss for the Tea Party. Unclear about the future fight left, and next strategy, for the advocates of the 21st Century.

Wisconsin Protests: Election Analysis
APRIL 6, 2011
Just my personal analysis of yesterday's election non-results. In case you have not heard, as of this writing the Supreme Court race too close to call. Recounts likely. TOO BAD. I thought Kloppenburg would win, and win by a good margin. MORAL VICTORY. On the other hand, changing the minds of thousands of Wisconsin voters in just three months, a positive sign about the ongoing fight. GOOD NEWS. We were outspent by big rich guys by over one million dollars.
Wisconsin Protests: Latest Analysis
FEBRUARY 22, 2011
The Wisconsin protests are a wonderful symbolic as well as real battle between the last century and this century. The battle is more than union versus anti-union. It is high school graduates (most Wisconsin people) versus college graduates (60% of state workers). It is cars versus trains. It is, most of all, Gen Y versus old people- Baby Boomers.

Pew Research Center: great surveys, clueless analysis
JULY 8, 2009
Unfortunately, the Pew folks are fairly clueless about the analysis of their own great surveys. In yesterday's blog entry, we talked about a great new study on the Generation Gap as reported by the Pew Research Center. For example, with regard to the Generation Gap survey results, Paul Taylor, director of the demographic trends project, said that the "generation gap in 2009 seems to be more tepid in nature than it was in the 1960s, when younger people built a defiant counterculture."
