WOMEN. PRO GAMES _ This dictionary began as a conversation between a colleague (Quoc Tran) and myself, discussing stories we've heard from various colleagues in our industry.


He mentioned the concept of "managing upwards" with regards to the phenomenon where a manager spends more time managing people outside the studio than inside. I had never heard that phrase before, and once he taught me what that meant, I found myself more aware of this occurrence when talking to friends in and outside of the games industry about their own management structures. It was shortly after that conversation that I posted a status update on my Facebook account: "Learned a new phrase today: 'Managing Upwards'". This led to a discussion amongst many other game developer colleagues about cool phrases that they were eager to share. Flow, Gamers and Superusers. According to Csikszentmihalyi, flow is an optimal state that can be attained when the challenges we encounter are matched to our ability.

Flow, Gamers and Superusers

When the task is slightly too easy (or too hard) we fall out of flow and go into a state where we feel in control (or aroused if the task is slightly too hard). When the task difficulty greatly exceeds our skills, we are likely to experience anxiety. And if the task challenges do not come close to our ability, we will often experience boredom (see figure). As illustrated by the figure, this also implies that when we are in a state of control or relaxation, we simply have to challenge ourselves and pick a more difficult task to get back into flow. However, if we picked a task that is too hard, we must learn and increase our skills gradually in order to move back into flow. Health Data Innovation.

As you will have noticed, this blog just changed its name to Health Data Innovation; this reflects a shift in this blog's focus that started a few months ago.

Health Data Innovation

The coverage of data development topics will continue, but the new focus is on health data and innovation with special attention to developing countries. My presentation at the Wolfram Data Summit gave a preview of some of the topics I cover. The blog also changed its URL to Nike’s new FuelBand tracks your calories and movement. If you’re tired of guestimating how many calories you burned walking around the living room, check out Nike’s new wristband gadget that tracks calories and movement.

The new Nike+ FuelBand, announced Thursday, is a direct competitor to Jawbone’s similar UP wristband. Jawbone suspended production of the UP in December and issued full refunds to customers after complaints of battery and synching issues. Like the Jawbone UP, the FuelBand is worn around your wrist and can be synched to an iPhone or PC to upload activity data. Sony intéressé par une manette biométrique ?

5 companies using big data to solve healthcare problems. “Big data” won’t do much to improve healthcare without big analytics.

5 companies using big data to solve healthcare problems

Thanks in part to billions in federal subsidies for electronic medical records (EMRs), it won’t be long before the U.S. is awash in vast, almost incomprehensible amounts of health data. It follows that developing the analytics to draw meaningful conclusions out of those mountains of data will become an increasingly important — and lucrative — area for companies in the health IT industry. “Leaders in every sector will have to grapple with the implications of big data,” stated a report earlier this year from McKinsey, which noted that the U.S. healthcare sector could create more than $300 billion in value every year if it were to “use big data creatively and effectively to drive efficiency and quality.”

Loosely speaking, big data can refer to anything involving voluminous sets of data. Quantified Self Europe. Quantified Self Europe I spent the weekend in Amsterdam for the first Quantified Self Europe conference which follows on from an event in Silicon Valley earlier this year (written up by the FT here).

I learned a lot and thought I’d pop some notes up so you can see what’s been going on. First presentation of the weekend was Rain Ashford talking about wearable computing. She showed how McLaren are using sensors inside the suits of Formula One drivers to try to monitor the drivers as well as they monitor the cars. \\\ SQUARE GARDEN ///
