Ta-daam! Here is the final draft of the STF ethnography. Please give me all the feedback possible. My main question/request: can someone recommend a good vizualisation tool for beginners that I could turn this 30+ page thing into something more people-friendly?

Also, the final final version will be proofread. This one wasn’t.

On it

As for visualization: the way I did the network one was using Keynote. But the main tricks were:

  • have great visuals (easy – networks are beautiful)
  • rewrite the whole thing stripping it to the bare bones.

#3

I am working on stripping it to the bone. but I am not comfortable in my skills in using vizualizations. @ericnbarrett, maybe you could suggest me something?


#4

Can I have an editable document?

PDF is just too cumbersome…


#5

deadline when?

I’ll probably be able to take a better look at this tomorrow or monday, when do you need to have some comments?


#6

Monday is fine

The whole thing needs to be delivered by July 30th. I aim to have a final draft (much shorter, visually more pleasant in the vein of the network report) by Wednesday 23.

Migrate to a shared document

I am reading the report. We need to have an fair amount of discussion on it. So please, Inga, let’s migrate to a share document. Instructions to follow by private email.

2 dogs to take care of…

sorry guys, my friend asked me saturday to take care of her dog as well, and as a result was more busy trying to get the pups to be tired so they wouldnt kill each other at home… I could still have a look at it later today if thats not too late?

1 report ? 2 reports?

Hi guys, I’m also reviewing it today, commenting, fixing typos etc

So I understand we will have 2 outputs, correct me if I’m wrong:

  1. the full report turned in to UNDP and published online in a nice format? this means we do pay attention to font, formatting (consistency with quotes etc), and references - I could also help add the posts where the quotes are taken from?

  2. the summary which will be more visual, care of @Alberto.

If you only plan to have the 2. visual one with excerpts or main ideas than it’s pointless to review formulations & formatting. let me know


#11

What does everybody think?

Very good question. Pulling off the short one is quite difficult, so I am doing some cleanup to help myself focus. Can anyone extract a 1000 words summary in bullet points, that we could put in a 12-15 slides report (with half of each slide dedicated to a visual)?


#12

I can do it

Will upload it as a .odt file this evening. Does it mean then that I do not have to worry about the vizualization and focus on proper formatting of the long report, update it according to the comments and get it proofread?


#13

Yes, do focus on the long form, please.


#14

hope it will be helpful
