Good to see @didoharding @julianhartley1 work emerging today with the publication of @NHSEngland @NHSImprovement @NHS_HealthEdEng Interim People Plan. Thread shows where things that matter to people are covered in plan. #OurNHSPeople @HealthwatchE 1/7
link.medium.com/E5wR40HvdX
Here’s a link to the plan: longtermplan.nhs.uk/wp-content/upl…
The introduction (pages 2 and 3) puts what people consistently tell @HealthwatchE about the need for joined-up staff in joined-up services at the heart of the plan. #OurNHSPeople 2/7 Pages 2-3 of Interim People Plan.
Important commitment that @NHS_HealthEdEng will ask people what we need from future doctors, to inform planning by royal colleges and @gmcuk. Of course, this ought to apply to all professional education across health and care, but it’s a good start. #OurNHSPeople 3/7 Page 15 of Interim People Plan.

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?
beltanenetwork.org/DialogueTheory…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

2 in 3 three people in Wales use #digital technology to support their #health through different actions. Our new report out today phw.nhs.wales/news-and-publi… @PublicHealthW @Cas__Sharp @markabellis
1 in 3 people in Wales use #digital tech to monitor their #health
But we found markedly lower levels in men than women, older ages (although 1 in 5 70+ yrs used tech to support health), less affluent areas, and amongst those who smoke/drink/inactive. #DigitalDivide. Lots more detail here. phw.nhs.wales/news-and-publi…

Hi #fintwit 😎 We are approaching a watershed moment in markets. Final deflationary phase of Kondratiev's winter is about to play out. Huge implications for #EUR, #Gold, #SP500, #DXY etc. I have some new interesting followers - hence something extra in this week's #HZupdates
#Kondratiev's winter is a period where #Velocity of Money drops which creates a disinflationary economic environment, where growth is subdued due to #debt levels. Since ~2000 we have been in this winter - and are still to see a range of "major economic events" unfold #HZupdates
In fact, we have never left the #Financial #Crisis. We have only been bouncing in the great "Financial and Sovereign Debt Crisis" of this #Kondratiev's winter. This can be observed from the #Deflation Gauges #Copper, #XAU, AUD, EUR. We are about to see wave C develop #HZupdates

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

legalevolution.org/2019/02/pay-ho…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

"If you have nothing to hide you are worthless" Shoshana Zuboff #CPDP2019
Should we not gather in resistance against surveillance capitalism which has come to destroy human nature as industrial capitalism did to nature?
@murakamiwood digital is another special fix of capitalism to commodify aspects of human experience until now uncommodified.

#ChangeIsAProcess, yes we know. But if you screwed for the first four years what makes you think you can deliver anything in the next four?

We need campaign mandates that go beyond attacking the opposition or showing us pictures of people attending rallies.
What's your plan for the economy?
How will you address #SDG goals?
How will you fight Boko Haram?
How will you address the issues that allows Boko Haram to gain sympathizers in the first place?
How will you work with neighbouring countries to tackle transborder economic goals?
How will you make the Civil Service more competent and modern?
What ways will you help young Nigerians benefit from the #digital economy?
How will you make Nigeria the giant of Africa once again?

These are key issues for all candidates, not blind followership or ultra-support!

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

project-syndicate.org/onpoint/the-ai…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."

Ordering food online on a Sunday in Kingston, Jamaica at 7:00 pm.

A Jamaican Digital Marketer's rant.

By Adrian Anansi.

{A THREAD}
Step 1.

Called all the people I knew that were less likely to cook on a Sunday:

Solutions offered:
1: Order from the restaurant, get a taxi pick it up.
2. Use Cut di Line.

Challenge:
1. No Cash
2. I'm a 21st Digital Marketer that still doesn't trust online food delivery in JA
Step 2.
Logs on to Cut di Line:

Findings:
- Not user-friendly (and I'm a digital marketer that can break down any site functionalities)
- I don't know where is open or closed
- I just don't trust spend my $$$ here and I'm uncomfortable in the first 15 secs of browsing the site

On the eve of the #2ndAnniversary of the #DeMonetisation that we know was a #DemonetisationDisaster I present a Tweet thread on my analysis of just one of the many claims made for it - that it would boost #cashless #digital transactions. It did not do that. Here's my evidence:
The analysis and paper (Draft 1) is here:
on issuu: issuu.com/home/published…
and
on Scribd: scribd.com/document/39252…
But here in this thread I present the main results. Previous analysts used a simplistic approach of doing a before-after comparison. But this is a spurious method
It leads to the Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy. See rationalwiki.org/wiki/Post_hoc,…
My analytical approach was simple. I used the figures from RBI and took the monthly data upto Oct 2016 on each idicator and treated it as a regular time series data. (see robjhyndman.com/hyndsight/fpp/)

Right, so lots going on and I'm thinking of doing some stuff. But I need your advice and feedback! If you could answer the following polls (comments also welcome) that'd help loads!
I am thinking of writing an old skool email newsletter. Probably monthly. It'd be a mix of what is on here but possibly with a bit more #digital, a bit more #France and other things that are interesting. Would you subscribe? (I've not included 'maybe' - I need binary!)
I will be hosting a live podcast all about #Europe and #Brexit with a heavy #FBPE, #StopBrexit, #PeoplesVote slant. Would you be interested in...

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Takeaways from @Dell financial call today... Dell is taking share across the board...will do $90-$92B in revenue this fy. Setting up for tough compare for next year. Dell citing favorable spending environment, assumptions are 2X GDP for IT spend...
Dell citing attractiveness of 1-stop shopping (end-to-end - edge->core->cloud) I surmise their cloud is VMware with AWS...Since EMC transaction, Dell is posturing as a much more strategic supplier than either Dell or EMC was as an independent company.
new sales comp plans implemented by Dell - @JClarkeatDell fingerprints seen on the enterprise storage biz which he took over about 1 yr ago. Storage was sucking wind post EMC transaction & is now gaining share. I think IDC numbers coming out soon showing Dell EMC gains
