Digital Sketchnotes: going over my painpoints with Sketchbook Pro and ArtRage 4.

I had a problem to go Digital for my #sketchnotes.

Thanks to the help of Sachac, I made the switch , when looking at a video of how she was using Sketchbook Pro.

The main pain points for me were :

  • The interface was too much in the way ( much more than a a pen and a moleskine ) ( as I do not know how to sketch , I need not a lot to side track me)
  • My digital sketch were far too big on the screen i.e. not I could not put enough stuff on a A4 ( less than on my A5 moleskine) . Zooming in and out was getting me lost.

The solution to this last point was to add a grid on a layer , which gave me a sense of the scale at a given point. Plus I added another Layer for the framework, where zones can be pre alloted, and which helps getting bearings when zooming and moving around. read more

Presentation Introducing to Diffusion of Innovation, with Sociology Patterns and Haskell

Just found (out of Serendipity) an Interesting presentation ( video plus slides) introducing to Diffusion of Innovation with Sociology / Social Patterns, mentioning several times Haskell. Good introduction to a mix of techniques for whoever interested in Haskell proselytism, and go to market strategy, drawing from Change management and Technology adoption lifecycle / Tipping Point, etc, in a pragmatic way. read more

Barriers, a technique to seed Product Innovation

Roman uses the word barriers on his Product Vision Board. The Intuition came to me to use this word barriers slighly differently, as follows:

  • A User aims at an objective , and barriers are what prevent to reach it (easily, with flow).
  • A product become then something that lower this barrier, a helper.
  • The value of the product become then the reduced cost of the effort 1 ProductAsReplacementValue

This bring potential to investigate products, and figure value as such: read more
