frogs just wrapped work on our #SFDWTours chalk art. See ya’ll at 8pmPST. (at frog design)
Tomorrow. #SFDWTours. The Sticky Notes from 8-9pm at our frog studio in San Francisco.
#InsightsHDX @UNOCHA_EA The frog team wrapped three weeks of research today, interviewing humanitarian partners in New York, Colombia, and Kenya. Following synthesis of the field work, the frogs will partner with OCHA’s development team in an agile process to design core features, functionality, and experiences for the HDX platform. #frogImpact
#InsightsHDX @iHub Lessons learned at iHub Nairobi this afternoon: Data privacy is an issue at both the detail and aggregate level. When scraping data from social media, analytics can attribute patterns of behavior (such as hate speech) to individuals. This raises an ethical question around where data visualization should be applied and which audiences are appropriate consumers. #frogImpact
#InsightsHDX Reports (rather than raw data) are primarily shared among partners in the Humanitarian community. This makes it challenging to disaggregate datasets, compare information, and build comprehensive analytic tools. #frogImpact
#InsightsHDX @UNICEFKenya frog wrapped research in Colombia last week and relocated to Nairobi to continue explorations of the data landscape surrounding humanitarian work. With each conversation and collaboration, the global picture of humanitarian data exchange comes more into focus. #frogImpact
#uxforgood We visited a small educational center aimed at explaining the history of the genocide and of the reconstruction of Rwanda to children between 10-20 years-old. The humanization of the tragic events through real stories of perpetrators and survivors, and symbolic stories of the following reconciliation, help the new generation assume the critical
thinking and empathy that are needed to run the country in the future. - Roberta Tassi
UXFORGOOD team during the observation at the Kigali Memorial Center. The experience is an incredibly painful path that starts with a cold narration of the historical facts, moves into intimate rooms of portraits,
objects and remains of the victims, continues through panels about other tragical genocides, and ends inside a children room dedicated to the death
of innocents. We all felt oppressed, we all felt the physical need of space and time to recover along the visit flow, we all felt the absence of the whole reconciliation process in the narration.
