2ème histoire #ET8 : Maud et la théorie de Barry Wellman

2ème histoire #ET8 : Maud et la théorie de Barry Wellman | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Cette deuxième histoire dans la série “Les identités physiques et numériques – #ET8” est plus une tentative de décrire un contexte – celui d’évolution et d’innovation dans les métiers du tourisme et dans le comportement des cibles – qu’une vraie histoire. Mais elle me semble nécessaire pour décrire le contexte de ce qui suivra.

***

Autrefois, dans un passé pas si lointain… quand un touriste ou un prospect appelait l’Office de Tourisme, les deux interlocuteurs pouvaient se former une image mentale du contexte : le touriste, chez lui, à sa table de cuisine ou sur le sofa, en train de préparer son voyage. L’agent d’accueil (brrrr) à l’Office de Tourisme derrière le comptoir, avec toute une panoplie de brochures et son site web affiché sur l’écran, pour une recherche instantanée dans sa base de données, pour répondre aux questions du prospect.

Co-ops seeding co-ops - Cultivate.Coop

Co-ops seeding co-ops - Cultivate.Coop | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

"If a cooperative is the best business model for your business, why not share that benefit with others? Imagine an entire economy of principled enterprises that serve member needs and advance democratic participation.

Cooperatives can grow the cooperative economy in several ways. One way is by growing themselves: increasing their membership, sales, locations, services, products and jobs. And co-ops grow the co-op economy when they do business with each other. Investment in cooperative loan, grant and equity funds also boosts cooperative economies.

Another method is for co-op businesses to seed the development of new cooperatives. For an existing co-op, a new co-op business in the local economy means new peers and more people understanding and committed to co-op principles and values; it can also mean an improved bottom line and more member benefits.

Several co-op development strategies emerge from a review of what co-ops around the country are doing to expand the co-op economy. These correspond well to research by David Ellerman on “enterprise creation” that starts from existing businesses."

Co-ops are a great idea, but not often easy to make work in practice. This wiki contains valuable advice based on working case histories.

Diffusion of innovations in social interaction systems. An agent-based model for the introduction of new drugs in markets.

The existence of imitative behavior among consumers is a well-known phenomenon in the field of Economics. This behavior is especially common in markets determined by a high degree of innovation, asymmetric information and/or price-inelastic demand, features that exist in the pharmaceutical market. This paper presents evidence of the existence of imitative behavior among primary care physicians in Galicia (Spain) when choosing treatments for their patients. From this and other evidence, we propose a dynamic model for determining the entry of new drugs into the market. To do this, we introduce the structure of the organization of primary health care centers and the presence of groups of doctors who are specially interrelated, as well as the existence of commercial pressure on doctors. For modeling purposes, physicians are treated as spins connected in an exponentially distributed complex network of the Watts-Strogatz type. The proposed model provides an explanation for the differences observed in the patterns of the introduction of technological innovations in different regions. The main cause of these differences is the different structure of relationships among consumers, where the existence of small groups that show a higher degree of coordination over the average is particularly influential. The evidence presented, together with the proposed model, might be useful for the design of optimal strategies for the introduction of new drugs, as well as for planning policies to manage pharmaceutical expenditure.

luiy's insight:

In order to make the data actionable we need to really focus on tools to clarify what we are looking at.

We need to think about

the process of tuning into a specific channelof segmenting dataof communicating the significance of that dataof doing SOMETHING with the data

To that end I’ve collected another list of tools that specifically help with visualizing different types of information.

Keep in mind that some of these tools just need ‘some play time’ where you trial and test different types of data until they begin to make sense to you, your audience, and your business.

You should always keep in mind

Some people are intellectual and other people are creative.Some people visualize numbers and some people visualize pictures.Some people read the line, others read in-between the line.Some people think as individuals, others think as groups.Brilliancy and genius is simple and straight-forward

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Quand Place de la toile m’est échue il y a cinq ans maintenant, je suis allé voir Dominique Cardon pour qu’il me conseille quelques lectures de base sur les questions numérique. Et il m’a dit tout de suite : « il faut absolument lire Fred Turner, De la contreculture à la cyberculture (2006), c’est un livre essentiel. » Et j’avoue honteusement ne pas l’avoir fait, le livre était gros, disponible en anglais seulement, j’ai été rebuté. Par la suite, la référence au livre de Turner est très souvent apparue au détour d’un texte ou d’un propos, rendant chaque jour sa lecture plus urgente. Lecture encore retardée car entre temps, Hervé Le Crosnier m’a annoncé que sa maison d’édition en avait lancé la traduction en français. Paresseusement, j’ai attendu cette traduction, qui vient donc de paraître aux éditions C&F, sous le titre Aux sources de l’utopie numérique. Et là, je le dis sans aucune exagération, cette lecture m’a émerveillé. Le livre de Fred Turner est extraordinaire.

BSim: An Agent-Based Tool for Modeling Bacterial Populations in Systems and Synthetic Biology

BSim: An Agent-Based Tool for Modeling Bacterial Populations in Systems and Synthetic Biology | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Large-scale collective behaviors such as synchronization and coordination spontaneously arise in many bacterial populations. With systems biology attempting to understand these phenomena, and synthetic biology opening up the possibility of engineering them for our own benefit, there is growing interest in how bacterial populations are best modeled. Here we introduce BSim, a highly flexible agent-based computational tool for analyzing the relationships between single-cell dynamics and population level features.

 

BSim includes reference implementations of many bacterial traits to enable the quick development of new models partially built from existing ones. Unlike existing modeling tools, BSim fully considers spatial aspects of a model allowing for the description of intricate micro-scale structures, enabling the modeling of bacterial behavior in more realistic three-dimensional, complex environments. The new opportunities that BSim opens are illustrated through several diverse examples covering: spatial multicellular computing, modeling complex environments, population dynamics of the lac operon, and the synchronization of genetic oscillators. BSim is open source software that is freely available from http://bsim-bccs.sf.net and distributed under the Open Source Initiative (OSI) recognized MIT license. Developer documentation and a wide range of example simulations are also available from the website. BSim requires Java version 1.6 or higher.
