Great to see an R&D project of ours at +Silicon Valley Data Science reach public release. This is an exciting app, where we're using data science to provide a better informational experience to riders on Caltrain. Over time it will get better as we build in predictions based on data from sensors, social media and users of the app themselves.
Do you ride the Caltrain? So do we! Our team of data scientists and enginee...

Good points. GTD tends to make you use one system, but I find that hard to do. I often don't want to mix up home and work in the same tool.
I keep to-do lists on 4 different systems and I am not ashamed. In fact, I think it's a feature - not a bug, as they say in software. I think there's an opportunity to improve this system, but I don't think I have to make it simpler. Maybe you feel this way too; if so, let's celebrate it.

One of my personal favourites is WorkFlowy. There's a few features I'd really like to see, and development seems quite slow but hands down one of the best tools I've used (FWIW, Workflowy is more of an Outliner than a Todo list, but as such it works as a great todo list and much more)

Of Wonders and Disruption

A new report from +Simon Wardley at the Leading Edge Foundation. I was honored to play a small part in putting this together.

While we don't pretend to be able to see the future in detail, we believe that the overall pattern of business and technology change is more predictable than many people think. Our research shows that business competition tends to go through 3 main phases - peace, war and finally wonder. Consider the war between Edison and Tesla which led to utility electricity, which then enabled wonders such as air conditioning, home appliances, radio and motion pictures. We are on the verge of many such wars and wonders now.

Executive guide to data strategy
This should be a great webinar today--at 2pm ET/11am PT--featuring +Julie Steele and +Scott Kurth from +Silicon Valley Data Science

"Recognizing that there is value in data is a great starting point, but what do you do next? It’s tempting to charge off and begin deploying platforms and capabilities, but unless they're solving real problems for your business, these investments can founder. Clearly articulating a data strategy—and doing so with both technology and business stakeholders at the table—helps ensure that you are focusing on the right things, and that your work with data has a business impact."

From +Julie Steele, a great report about the emerging role of the chief data officer. Do you need one? How should you hire one?

I'm loving that we're generating such great content at +Silicon Valley Data Science

Introduction
I'm @edd on Twitter.

Telling the story of our future, where technology is headed, and what we need to know now. In business, code and words. Currently on an exciting journey as VP Strategy at Silicon Valley Data Science.

I am the founding Chair of O'Reilly Strata conference, and founding editor of Big Data. Between 2008 and 2013 I was the Chair of O'Reilly Open Source Convention.

On Google+, the founder of the Data Data Data community, focused on big data and data science.

Who are you?

A writer of words and software, periodically an entrepreneur, an enthusiastic but messy cook. An editor and a conference chair, and a finder of patterns in the world.

What do you do?

Big data, open source, web development, semantic web, computer programming, open standards. I chair conferences, write and edit books and articles, give conference presentations and develop software.

Can you show me a more official bio?
