Join me for a Discussion on Modern Devil’s Advocacy

I’ll be discussing modern Devil’s Advocacy on Thursday, November 12th at 1:30 PM (ET) with Adrian Reed, author, speaker, consultant, and principal of Blackmetric Business Solutions.

This casual and open exchange of ideas will be informative and useful to anyone responsible for decision-making, such as business analysts and project managers, including both experienced practitioners in senior roles and those who are early in their careers.

An Informative and Entertaining Online Exploration of Maps

Map by Nicolas de Fer (public domain)

Scientist/philosopher Alfred Korzybski observed: “A map is not the territory it represents, but, if correct, it has a similar structure to the territory, which accounts for its usefulness.”

Korzybski’s comment is insightful because simplified representations of the world can (intentionally or naively) offer misleading narratives about reality.

Bending Lines: Maps and Data from Distortion to Deception is a wonderful online exhibition of maps, their construction and interpretation – provided by the Leventhal Map & Education Center.
