World Cup Fever hits Terazije

by Limbic on April 26, 2010

I’m not a big football fan, however the recent daily scenes of hundreds of adults and children exchanging world cup stickers certainly amuses me somewhat!

I find it amazing that of all things – it is football that can bring hundreds of people, of all ages, colors and backgrounds together into one place, without any problems of issues!

What do you all make of it?

Looks like neo-Nazi hooligans in Belgrade have connected with their brethren in the UK.

There has been an up-tick in Hooligan related violence in Belgrade recently, with shootings and even a train steaming incident.

Information Graphics by Jeff McNeill

by Limbic on April 18, 2010

This is another presentation from Jeff McNeill (who brought you the Drucker and Goldratt Concept map).

This one is an introduction to Information Graphics, a topic I that has fascinated me ever since coming across Edward Tufte and recently stimulated by Dan Roam’s superb Back of the Napkin series of books on Visual Thinking.

Drucker and Goldratt Concept Map

by Limbic on April 18, 2010

This is a concept map showing the key ideas and relationships between Peter Drucker’s Effective Executive and the Theory of Constraints by Eliyahu Goldratt (The Goal, It’s Not Luck).

It was created by Jeff McNeill using IHMC Cmap Lite. Another concept mapping tool is Sciral’s excellent Flying Logic visual planning application.

The map is well worth downloading and reviewing at full size.
