Hello world!

14 October, 2008 (16:43) | Uncategorized | By: admin

Hello and welcome to my website.

In this blog, I would like to share my research interest, which is how to communicate efficiently, or how to get a message across.

I have talked about that subject in other blogs or websites I write for. So now, I’ll keep all conversations on this subject here, and let these other websites focus on their initial subjects.

So where have I written?

Videogames

  • Gamethink was my first site on which I wrote extensively. I have worked for a while in the videogame industry and I have used this space to write a number of columns on a variety of subjects, like game violence or history of videogames. But I consider that my work on gamethink is mostly done. I don’t plan to update it regularly anymore, and I don’t plan to ever work in the videogame industry again. That being said, a good third of the articles I wrote haven’t been published yet.
  • Amusement is a game, fashion and lifestyle magazine to which I contribute regularly.

Statistics

I work at the OECD and my job is to improve the communication of statistics. More on that in future posts.

There, I worked on two more or less official blogs:

the OECD Factblog, where I publish excerpts of OECD data. My most successful and most interesting story has been about how to publish graphs on blogs and websites.

the OECD Statitistcs Spotlight, where I produce graphs to illustrate topical subjects.

I’m also collaborating on a book with colleagues from several statistical agencies about guidelines for producing graphs. It would be a follow-up to this guide: Making Data Meaningful.

Hi Jerome. I see that your OECD Factblog has been taken down, which is a shame. Have you re-published your “how to publish graphs on blogs and website” piece anywhere else?

Keep up the good work!

Hello, the address for the OECD Factblog is http://www.oecd.org/statistics/factblog. The artciles which were in the previous platform are still available in the rss feed archives, at http://feeds.feedburner.com/OecdFactblog. If you subscribe to the feed via a reader like google reader, all articles are still here.

Thanks for the update Jerome. An old blog post of mine linked to your “how to publish graphs on blogs and website” piece. Although I have indeed found it in the rss feed archives, I haven’t worked out if there is anyway to link there.

anyway, I was thinking for a while to rewrite it. It’s quite obsolete now…
