I’ve ended my public Visual Business Intelligence Workshops and quarterly Visual Business Intelligence Newsletter, in part, to make time for other ventures. You have perhaps noticed that here, in my Perceptual Edge blog articles, I sometimes veer from data visualization to reflect my broader interests. In this blog, I’ve usually tried to my keep topics at least tangentially related to data sensemaking, but I now find this too confining. Going forward, I’d like to release the reins and write about any topic that might benefit from my perspective. Rather than expanding the scope of Perceptual Edge for this purpose, however, I’ve created a new website——as a venue for all of my other interests.

If you’ve found my work useful in the past, you might find the blog on my new website useful as well. I promise, I won’t waste your time with self-indulgent articles. Most of these articles will address the following topics:

  • Ethics, especially ethical approaches to the development and use of information technologies
  • Critical thinking
  • Effective communication
  • Brain science
  • Scientific thinking
  • Skepticism
  • Deep learning

I will feel free, however, to venture beyond these when so inspired.

When I write about data visualization or other aspects of data sensemaking, I’ll continue to post those articles here in my blog as well. Other articles, however, will only be posted in my blog.

To launch the new website, I posted my first blog article there today titled Beware Incredible Technology-Enabled Futures. In it, I expose the frightening nonsense of a new TED talk titled “Three Steps to Surviving the Robot Revolution,” by “data philosopher” and “serial entrepreneur” Charles Radclyffe.

Take care,
