In an essay I wrote, "only unaware practitioners use made-up #personas in their design work".

I think I know why this is done.

There is a difference between #characters and #archetypes. You can make up characters, as long as each character is based on a researched archetype.

People who make up personas are actually making up characters, but they make these characters without any grounding. There are usually no researched archetypes.

You can do better, and have fun:

1) Some long and loose ⛳️ thoughts on the big @PGATOUR news today from someone *insanely highly invested* in a family member who has been both inside and outside the Top 50 line and will be fighting every week for position:
2)The *methods* LIV took to exploit the vulnerability in the @PGATOUR are worth all the criticism, but the *insight* behind it was completely valid: the best players are not being paid enough for the value they bring to the sport.
3)The ONLY way to solve the problem is by 1) growing the pie and 2) redistributing it. The Tour was struggling to grow the pie because the best players weren’t all playing at the same time. It’s not far off from what we’ve seen w/load management in @NBA (who should pay attention)

2/res Ths who’ve never done #research in lifetime find it difficult to understand, why this is critical, for directing commissioning & using, good policy relevant research [An internal core of researchers is key to success]. For them ideas & analysis can be bought like software📦
3/res Any org that merely reacts to media headlines, & questions raised by critics, is like a consultancy organisation, not a think tank. It can never anticipate problems, nor create imaginative new solutions. Worlds top consultancy orgs. reward salesmanship not analysis… 4/res

(1) I wish I could get through to all the young agents about how unique and valuable this challenging market is for their skill development and long-term upside in CRE industry this market is. Only by battling through the GFC was I forced to evolve into the agent I became...
(2) ...while at the same time experiencing younger competitors bail from the industry while the more established agents created a window for me to catch up and then pass them by focusing on their private RE portfolios, time with their family or even more time golfing...
(3)...all because they felt they ROI on time invested in their brokerage wasn't worth it because there just weren't very many deals going on. Back then it was because of a total implosion in RE, while current conditions aren't as difficult, they are still challenging..

(1/?) Sometimes wisdom looks different than we imagine. When we’re frustrated, stuck at home, complaining, making mountains of molehills- we want wisdom to be easy. Instead we must go out and accomplish something, see how big this world is. How hard people work.
Only then we get real wisdom. And don’t worry, this ain’t some Mach tough love bullshit (not completely.) Because real wisdom is as graceful and kind as we imagined it would be. It desires a safe comfortable home for all, kindness of strangers and enjoying life. But it’s earned.
You won’t find that wisdom sitting at home frustrated. When you’re in that mode, you want quick fixes you call wisdom. You want the idea or imagine of wisdom, the picture of a smiling Buddha. But it’s just a picture. You gotta go out and see this world. See the plights of others.

A very interesting #perspEctive on #cryptocrash and #SBF_FTX:

1/ A true scandal is opening for the Biden administration.

April 25, 2019: Biden announces his presidential campaign.

13 days later, Sam Bankman-Fried, son of Barbara Fried
2/ ( Stanford Professor and co-founder of political fundraising organization "Mind-the-Gap), launches #FTX crypto exchange.

The exchange is magically an overnight success. SBF becomes biggest donor to Biden.

Election day, FTX implodes completely.
3/ If you think this scandal is done, it goes even deeper.

Gabe Bankman-Fried, brother to Sam (also a former Jane Street trader), is founder of “Guarding Against Pandemics”

Before #McSikhi, Punjabis practiced #Sikhi of our Gurus.

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

“Agreement with Indiana marks milestone in UK’s trade with the US”—the UK government proclaims

Read on

It's a memorandum of understanding on what the UK and Indiana want to develop in their trade and economic relations. That stretches the meaning of “agreement” quite a lot

Good question⬇️. Short answer: no

So, all we know is what the UK government press release says.

This is what it says:

“The MoU creates a framework to remove barriers to trade and investment, paving the way for UK and Indianan businesses to invest, export, expand and create jobs.”

Remember: all major trade barriers are handled in Washington

RIP Kerri Grote #perspective

"If you’re reading this, this fu$king brain cancer probably got me.
But let me be crystal clear while I’m able: I did not ”lose a battle” against cancer. This is a ridiculous, steamy pile of horse shit that society has dumped on cancer patients.
Western medicine, and Western culture, especially, is so uncomfortable talking about death that instead it created this “battle” analogy that basically shames people who die from cancer.
News flash: None of us gets out alive from this rodeo called life.
There is no shame in dying from cancer – or any serious illness. And it doesn’t need to be a battle. It’s a transition that each of us will go through. I was asked by a shaman, whom I spoke to after my 2nd brain surgery, “Are you running towards life or running away from death?”

While NOTHING compares to the Holocaust & the systematic slaughter & attempted world-wide annihilation of the Jewish people... is fair to examine the successful use of repeated propaganda by the Nazi Party to bend the will of everyday citizens to achieve Nazi goals.

The soft, soothing voice from the speaker above repeats...

"We are all in this together"

"Doing our/your part"

"Staying apart to stay safe."

"Stay home, stay safe."

"Stay safe"

Minutes pass...and that same soothing voice repeats its rallying cries for you to make sacrifices for the greater good.

A greater good that may require you to:

- sacrifice your freedoms.

- shame others who do not fall in line...and "snitch" on your neighbors.

Hey #Ontario

8 things to think about as we head into a new week:

1) Reminder: "Hospitalization", "ICU" & "Deaths" are all subsets of the total number of "Cases" - & are subject to the same case definition.

- The case definition only requires...

...a recent "positive" test result (NO symptoms required).

- This means that neither "Cases", "Hospitalizations", "ICU" nor "Deaths" require the person to actually have COVID-19 symptoms to be counted.

2) #BREAKING: Viruses do NOT care about your feelings or how important your task is (or you feel that it is).

- If a virus so contagious and/or dangerous that the only way to protect yourself is to take precautions - then the level of risk does NOT...

Just a reminder...

"Hospitalizations", "ICU admissions", & "deaths" attributed to COVID-19 are all a subset of the total # of "cases" - and as such are subject to the case definition which only requires a "+" test result (with or WITH symptoms) usually within previous 30 days.…

So, if you had a "positive" test result on admission to hospital for emergency heart surgery, etc. - and NEVER had or developed symptoms during your entire hospital stay - you would be classified as a "COVID-19 Hospitalization".
If you had a "+" test result & then died of traumatic injuries after an accident, committed suicide, or were already on death's doorstep & were expected to die imminently from cancer - yet had absolutely NO symptoms of COVID-19 - you would still be classified a "COVID-19 death".
