MM Campfire — Dec 10, 2020

Campfire, marshmallows and conversation! The MM team gets together regularly in a sort of free-form discussion that’s not quite a chat, and not quite a discussion. It’s a cross between instant chat and performance art.


Good morning!

c: …right outta the gate I’m yammerin’ about the new HTML5-based, embedded player! Nicer player in our episode landing pages (eg https://moversmindset.com/50 ) and it now includes subscribe and share links so people can listen on the page, or they can pop out to their fave podcatcher. I’ve been waiting for that for A LONG TIME. :smiley:

M: It looks so good! Shiny and new….

c: …and we have schnazzy video players now.

What/who have we seen recently from prev guests?

c: I saw Amos making some noise about being in WCT 2020. https://www.worldchasetag.com which was recently on— NBC was it?? But also, Frank Mejia was in WCT earlier in England… Let’s pin Frank’s episode in the Forum? He’s episode 45! :slight_smile: https://moversmindset.com/45

M: I like it!

c: we actually talk about his experience with WCT in that episode. But we’ve a couple other guests who I think were in WCT, but ima not name names and get it wrong. I mean, Seb obviously, he’s of course https://moversmindset.com/16 https://moversmindset.com/18 https://moversmindset.com/20 … dang, we’re prolific.

M: I know of at least one, and a few people who are on our list but we haven’t had a chance to talk with yet.

Speaking of prolific

c: soooooooooooooo, 96, 97, 98, 99. wait, what’s after that?

M: EPISODE 100!!! We still need to decide how we want to commemorate the event…

c: we have two more guests lined up in the next two weeks. We have (checks proj mgt system) thru episode 93 set/planned/scheduled/in-production/verbing/winning. So if we have 95, and 97 be the two lined up… who’s 94, 96, 98, 99 and then, wait, I forget what’s after 99.

100-one-hundred-a-hundred

M: 100 is TBD, but that’s an excellent question… We have a few people we’ve been dancing around interviewing for a while. I’m thinking while we’re stuck with only virtual interviews, we may as well take advantage. We could do Jiho in South Korea, we could try to get Fagan in Singapore…

c: I was thinking we’d upcycle four more of the video conversations.

M: Ah, gotcha. Well, allow me to check my list…

c: let’s definitely not reuse that shitty conversation with redacted!

M: Dambly is up next, then I’d like to get Cosmo out there, and the other two I”m thinking are Kyle Koch and Andre Miller

c: 94/Dambly, 95/Cosmo, 96/todays-guest? 97/Koch, 98/next-weeks-guest, 99/Miller ???

M: Yes. And then…. Episode 100. What to do for 100….

c:

make-it-so

c: 100… let’s talk about . . .

Data visualization!!

c: or, a more important visualization…

turn-signals

c: I’ve started creating data visualization views (like [holds up doodle in video call—you missed it, become a patreon member and you an join us in the call]) {5000 words spoken here}

…so the idea is to get a basic visualization work to replace the 3-words index — Index of guests’ “three words” with an interactive image on each episode’s page.

…why do I bring this up?

Episode 100

c: I would like 100 to be forward-looking, NOT just a giant retrospective. Sure we can answer questions (if we gather them, if people answer them) … but I (me, literally myself) want to talk about data visualization, how to create links so people can find the show, subscribe, how the forum works as a “home” for each episode, who we want to interview in seaons 5, where we want to go, — that sort of stuff.

M: Unpacking some of what we’re doing and want to do behind the scenes. I see. We should also mention wanting to do work with the themes…

c: ALSO: begging for patreon support, I’d like to do that. more. Patreon support. Did I mention people should go to https://patreon.com/moversmindset yet in this chat???

R: sounds like a plan. A really good idea for the 100th episode.

c: …R did you scroll up and read where we were talking about you? :wink:

R: I scanned through everything but must have missed that. Let me go back and read more in-depth….

Sorry, looked through and I must have missed the mention!!

M: Besides all the nuts and bolts, I think the data visualization is absolutely fascinating. And I love love LOVE the idea of an interactive database that is living and updating as we create. It makes it a much better and easier experience to browse through our catalogue and find things that interest them. Even as a living graph, it’s data that we can track and use and people can view. I think the idea of data that is instantly visually understandable is really exciting. Especially because we have to much raw material to use…

c: Pretty sure Ruby looooooooooooves the data vis project as it means she doesn’t have to edit that forum topic any more.

soon

c: Other potential topics for data visualization (that I’ve thought of, but there are so many) are the ideas/themes that are listed in each episode’s title… I’d FREAKIN’ LOVE to see the correlations, cross-connections, etc from that. And then we might try doing the capter titles… or even all the themes in each chapter…

M: Whenever we get more things through the data visualization, it would be really interesting to do an episode analyzing the correlations. Do we know anyone who is a data analyst who is also interested in movement?

c: visual;dslsxdjdhjm nhjhnmdfmdfs,h gtion :smiley: you ever see nerds write “i18n” ??

I N T E R N A T I O N A L I Z A T I O N ppl who have to internationalize (convert language in software that the users see, into 250 languages. Go!) get a leeeeeetle sick of typing internationalization all day. So they just type i18n (there are 18 chars between i and n) doh.

c: geek shoots! GOAL. anyway.

M: Do you one better. Data visualization is now DV. Done

c: Yeah, I was soooo trying to figure out how to get an ‘m’ in it… so we have a ton of discussion about the dmv. (in a positive context… I LOVE the dmv… omg the dmv it totes amazeballs… and so on.)

R: oh brother

M: …. You’re a bad person.

c: ¿ …where art thou ??! no? NO?? it’s a movie reference… oh brother george clooney (that’s how my brain works… Ruby wrote “oh brother” and my brain went . . . )

c: favorite type of comedy??? The type where i have to FSKING EXPLAIN IT.

R: …….

c: that’s another joke. “fsck” is a thing, unix fsck …and if you’re fsck’ing it’s bad. Maybe if I have more caffeine this will get better? (definition of addiction: You can spell caffeine right off the bat.)

M: Or if Ruby and I could code…? Eh, probably still be bad.

c:

you_dont_say

10 kinds of people in this world. . . . .

. . . those who can count in binary, and those who can’t.

M: I’ll give you that one, it was funny XD

c: or people who can add 3 to a baker’s dozen and get A, right answer. (jeopardy theme music) oh shit, that doesn’t work. the right answer is F. I get an F on that joke. It would work if I wrote it as.

c: or people who can subtract 2 from a bakers dozen and get a right answer. (derp.)

c: n/m. Moving in.

What else / Cool instagrams?

M: Don’t get me started on instagram this week. Some kerfluffles in the parkour world. -_-

c: so, Melissa, anything cool on instagram this week??

c: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw https://www.instagram.com/p/CIlFC8ogn6l/

c: and, (said quietly) “yes please” https://www.instagram.com/p/CIlMI1SjjTn/

M: I saaaawwww

R: nice beefy tic-tac: https://www.instagram.com/p/CIjNU7HHdIV/?igshid=1qr04lz9km3m
