“Whenever I am infuriated,” she wrote to her friend, the influential politician Sidney Herbert, “I revenge myself with a new diagram.”
My network map isn’t nearly as interesting or groundbreaking as Florence Nightingale’s, but it’s mine and it taught me some interesting things.
It taught me that I mostly know people in Canada, although lots of people in my network are in places outside of Canada.
It also taught me that most of my contacts are in the oil and gas industry, through regulatory affairs, or Nondestructive Testing (NDT), which came as no surprise to me.
Finally, it taught me that I’m not very good at Kumu, and that I’d like to give it another try. I did learn that Excel has a map function, which was new to me! I’ve done some other research and reading on different types of networks and will include that in my Unit 3 reading reflection, to be posted this weekend.
