Brief Thoughts on XKCD: The Pace of Modern Life

Category:Communications Processes,Infosec Communicator,Leadchange,techcomm Tags : 

This XKCD comic is an entertaining look into the perception of the changes in communication brought on by the increased pace of society–more than 100 years ago!¬†It reminds me of reading¬†The Victorian Internet: The Remarkable Story of the Telegraph and the Nineteenth Century’s On-line Pioneers, an interesting look at the change brought by the completion of the Trans-Atlantic cable. It also reminds me of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, wherein the characters are bemoaning the loss of the Golden Age, no matter in what century they live.

Do you miss the “Good Old Days” when the pace of life was slower? (Of course, the length of life was shorter.)

Yes, I’m aware of the irony in the post title. Had I fewer distractions…

Visualizing Your Professional Network

Category:Infosec Communicator,Social Networking,STC,STC Rochester Tags : 

Did you know that LinkedIn Labs provides a graphical representation of your professional network? It’s similar to a hyperbolic browser I saw demonstrated several years ago in a research facility in Silicon Valley. The map allows you to hover over each point and provides a popup of your connection. After spending last week at the STC Summit conference and adding many contacts to LinkedIn, I thought it would be fun to take a look.

Here’s a picture of my network, highlighting one of my favorite connections. You’ll note that the connections are clustered in several different groups, representing my involvement in two professional organizations, higher education, and the corporate world.

LinkedIn provides a short video overview of the connections map.

Do you find this type of graphical representation useful? Why or why not?
