A Quadrant Life - The tyranny of the two-by-two

The tyranny of the two-by-two
Sometimes I wonder whether western business would completely collapse without the two-by-two matrix (I only say western business, because I don't have much experience of eastern business). You know what I mean? Four squares - two-by-two, most of the time with two axis. You've seen the type of thing I'm talking about, a bit like this: We've used them for all sorts of purposes with the SWOT chart being one of the most popular: We also use them to...

If you’ve done any cooking you’ve probably experienced a glass bowl exploding. The Slow Mo Guys create some great footage of this happening – it happens amazingly fast:

Eighty-one percent of U.S. office workers say state of the art technology is important at work, outranking food and beverages (72%), a beautiful office design (61%) and on-site amenities (56). Only one in four (26%) of U.S. office workers believes that…
Eighty-one percent of U.S. office workers say state of the art technology is important at work, outranking food and beverages (72%), a beautiful office design (61%) and on-site amenities (56). Only one in four (26%) of U.S. office workers believes that their company's technology is "ahead of the curve." Indians are slightly more bullish (30%) while the U.K. is especially pessimistic (15%). In the U.S., those who said their company's technology is...

One of the things I remember about my father-in-law was a little obsession with door bells. He would spend much of his time in the workshop and occasionally would miss people. There were a number of contraptions created from the various parts available in the workshop. Colin Furze takes this to a whole new level: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrLtoC8nNeA

Most of us are inseparable from our smartphones and spend much of our life gazing into screens small and large. I've often wondered how much time I spend looking into my iPhone screen and now I know - a lot. Moment is an iOS application that tracks how much time I am spending on my iPhone and how many times I pick it up. If you had asked me before running Moment I would have told you that I probably used my iPhone for about an hour a day. You can...

Have you heard the rumour that Twitter is shutting down because of abuse problems? It's not. Likewise, Facebook will NOT be charging from the Summer of 2016 (if Summer ever arrives around here) As humans we love rumours and we love to propagate them, particularly alarming ones. There are situations where our love for the alarming causes false rumours spread faster than the facts. Social media allows us to spread these rumours at a pace unimaginab...

There once was a boy who loved swords.He wasn't old enough for a metal sword wooden ones were more than adequate. They would be swung around his head. He'd spin and thrust. He'd leap forward, twist and swing the sword. His wrist would twist and push the sword forward. He'd jump and reach upwards. He'd land and position. Combing moves up and down the lawn he would dance. This way and that, backwards, forwards and sideways In a world of his own he ...

The Ordnance Survey has analysed over 500,000 routes recorded via it’s current “digital products” and put together a fabulous set of visualisations. They’ve also assessed the data for the most popular routes. Not surprisingly Lake District routes dominate…

Have you ever started something and regretted it soon after, that's not a definition of Yak Shaving but is the way I've felt writing this post. There is no law of office speak, no one is the overall governor of the meaning of office speak in different context. For this reason I like to research the meaning before I write these posts to see whether my understanding of the term is widespread. There are many useful places to do this research; if a n...

The team at Improv Everywhere have been having fun again. This time their set-up was to create a graduation ceremony with a problem - no commencement speaker. So they went around the vicinity asking anyone and everyone if they would be willing to do the speech. The results are both funny and inspiring. It got me thinking; if someone asked me to do an impromptu commencement speech what would I exhort the graduates to do? There are some great examp...
