An Example of Analysis

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This is a response to an email query, and I offer it here as an analysis of how I would look at, read, and respond to a typical email exchange. There's a lot of analysis in my response. 99% of the time I don't say anything, but for everything I read, this is the sort of thought process that runs through my mind. Just so you know. :) - Hello Mr. Downes, Really enjoy your website on fallacies.

A brief analysis of the Top 200 Tools for Learning 2017

Jane Hart

Here is a brief analysis of what’s on the list and what it tells us about the current state of personal learning, workplace learning and education. I compiled the Top 200 Tools for Learning 2017 (the 11th Annual Survey) from the votes of 2,174 learning professionals from 52 countries worldwide. Here … Social learning

The celebrity analysis that killed celebrity analysis

Mind Hacks

Most ‘psy’ professionals are banned by their codes of conduct from conducting ‘celebrity analysis’ and commenting on the mental state of specific individuals in the media.

Wisconsin Recall Analysis

Nine Shift

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 Elections Analysis

Nine Shift

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 Protests: Latest Analysis

Nine Shift

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. Here's some of my pictures from the big rally that made national and international news. Click on them to enlarge them

Using social network analysis to uncover authority and centrality

Ross Dawson

I have applied the tools and approaches of network analysis to a wide variety of domains, including organizational analysis , industry analysis , client relationship analysis , influence networks , sales and innovation networks , high-performance personal networks , and far more. However network analysis is an invaluable complement to that work, applying it as a tool to help improve performance. Read the article for full details on the analysis.

Reality check: intelligence agencies have been using social network analysis since the 1990s

Ross Dawson

I fail to understand why this is big news, since US intelligence agencies have been using social network analysis (SNA) for domestic purposes since the 1990s, and likely even before that. There is a big hubbub today over a New York Times article N.S.A.

Power analysis of a typical psychology experiment

Mind Hacks

Since it is a common test, I’ve been doing a power analysis for a two-sample (two-sided) t-test, for small, medium and large effects (as conventionally defined ). You really should prefer within-sample analysis, whenever possible (power analysis of this left as an exercise).

Cognitive Task Analysis

Clark Quinn

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.

Twitter network analysis of events - what's possible?

Ross Dawson

Among other interesting entrepreneurial activities Daniel is playing with a new venture that does analysis of Twitter activity around events. There are many, many ways that effective Twitter analysis could be highly valuable for events.

Levels of analysis

Clark Quinn

From that beginning, I’ve been interested in useful mental models, and good analysis from appropriate levels of abstraction. When I was a grad student, a fellow student did an interesting study. In analogical reasoning, what helps is abstracting from the specifics to the more general (and folks are bad at generating good analogies, though okay at using them, according to my PhD and other research). Folks had made efforts at getting abstraction, and failed.

Analysis of a folksonomic protest

David Weinberger

Eugenio Tisselli Vélez has posted an analysis of a tag used in Germany to protest a restriction Flickr placed on photos tagged as unsafe. Among its conclusions: The analysis of the data shows that protestors most likely disseminated the use of strategic tagging among their contacts, rather than within a particular specific-interest group.

Does Rigorous Data Analysis Thwart Effective Storytelling by Non-Profits?

Beth Kanter

Pew Research Center: great surveys, clueless analysis

Nine Shift

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."

DARPA offers $42 million for ‘revolutionary’ research on social media analysis

Ross Dawson

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. I have been following how intelligence agencies have been using network analysis from the mid-1990s, including writing an article on the topic in The Bulletin in July 1997, and in 2005 I wrote about Social networks, intelligence, and homeland security , covering some of the players in the space.
