The Cuyahoga County corruption scandal in NE Ohio continues forward with tentacles reaching into various suburbs surrounding Cleveland. The data to create the map was gathered from the Cleveland Plain Dealer's reporting on the scandal or from various legal documents available to the public.

Connecting the Dots in the Mortgage Meltdown

TNT - The Network Thinker

The house, in the Slavic Village neighborhood of Cleveland, had a mortgage that was part of the Goldman Sachs synthetic CDO, ABACUS 2007-AC1. I wonder if a Goldman Sachs executive would spend a night in the house above? After all, they do kind of "own" it.

The intersection of Art and Technology will be highlighted at Cleveland's Ingenuity Festival next week. As a prelude to the Ingenuity Festival, Cleveland State University is holding a public forum on Creativity and Technology. Innovation happens at the intersection.

Connecting to Change the World

Patti Anklam

And this week (DrumRoll, please) Peter and Madeleine and their colleague John Cleveland have just published a shiny new book, Connecting to Change the World: Harnessing the Power of Networks for Social Impact. I’ve worked with Madeleine Taylor and Pete Plastrik on a number of network analysis projects over the past four years.

Here's a way to start the Peace Talks: See MetroPAL.IS.

Endless Knots

SNA.Art or Science?

Governance in a Networked World

In fact several years ago I was visiting Valdis Krebs in Cleveland at a time when Mark Lombardi's hand drawn SNA maps were doing a tour of the art galleries and just happened to be in Cleveland at that time. Art appreciation isn't a strength of mine, yet I've been to many galleries around the world tagging behind my art teacher wife. On the weekend we visited the NSW Art Gallery for the Monet exhibition with some friends.

It's the Network, Stupid

TNT - The Network Thinker

On the internet, 100 packets sent from Cleveland all arrive in New York wholly intact -- not so with a 100 MW of electricity generated in Cleveland and sold to NY. It makes no sense to transfer electricity made in Cleveland to Los Angeles -- most of it would be lost during the trip.

Networks, Patterns & Paintings

TNT - The Network Thinker

Now, a group of physicists from Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University have come out with what they say is a better analysis. I have shared the story of a client saying one of my network maps reminded him of a Jackson Pollock painting. That is J.P. above starting a new painting. [

Location, Location, Location

The golden rule of real estate [ location, location, location ] is also golden rule of social networks. In real estate, its your physical location -- your geography. In social networks its your virtual location -- your "socialography". One is visible, the other mostly invisible.

Don’t start blaming the neighbours

Now things have quietened down a bit, what can we say about the questioning of neighbourliness around 2207 Seymour Ave in Cleveland Ohio ? Don’t blame the neighbours; avoid knee-jerk conjuring of halcyon historic community; and take mental health more seriously.

Driving Through Hurricane Sandy To New Orleans

Portals and KM

To get out of the storm as soon as possible, I decided to go straight west through upstate New York and on to Cleveland before turning south, where the winds were only predicted to be 50 mph. I drove diagonally across the whole state of Ohio from Cleveland to Cincinnati.

Remembering When I First Heard Elvis

Portals and KM

DJ Alan Freed used the term, rock and roll, in Cleveland in 1951. I was thinking about Elvis the other day as I listened again to some of his early songs. He recorded his first song “That’s All Right” on July 5, 1954. The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll credits him as the first rock and roll star, which is a fair statement. Elvis, himself, said that he was just part of a movement.

One of the bloodiest battles was fought in Cleveland, in the Slavic Village neighborhood. Anthony Brancatelli was the local Cleveland city councilman in Slavic Village. The recent mortgage meltdown had many players in many places.

Connecting the Dots: Main Street and Wall Street

Plot the data!

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

We're indebted to those such as William Cleveland and Edward Tufte for their research-based insights on ways to generate helpful, honest graphics. I've heard the injunction " Plot the data " for decades. Plotting the data is important throughout statistical analyses, from initial looks to surmise what model might fit the data to looking at residual plots to check the model or see what might be a good next step.

Making sense of lots of data

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

I'm a fan of William Cleveland 's insights into what works in graphics. His ideas have spread widely; you may have seen some in Tufte's work. Recently I ran across a relatively new way of displaying time series graphs. It's called a horizon plot. At first, I thought it rather contrived. As Stephen Few also decided, they are beginning to grow on me. Read his Time on the Horizon for a good introduction or Timely Portfolio's Horizon Plot Already Available for how to create them in R.

Only Connect

It was a great day in Cleveland -- it did not snow, and the Indians won! Today was Opening Day for most Major League Baseball teams. During the winter, most baseball talk was about who was mentioned in the "Mitchell Report" on steroid use in baseball.

Getting a handle on data

Making Sense With Facilitated Systems

I've recently finished William Cleveland's The Elements of Graphing Data and found it highly useful in helping me to think about graphics more effectively. When I teach system dynamics , I emphasize the importance of starting with a reference mode or reference behavior pattern: a graph that describes the problem being addressed over time. That's vital for grounding one's thinking in the real world. I've written about the importance of looking at data here, too.

Social Network Travel Logging
