My Day Job

Here’s what I’ve been doing these last few months -

As you can see, I’ve been working on a collaboration system for intelligence analysts. (Hence the guns & crimes!)

It is all written using Adobe tools – Flex and Flash – so people just need to click a link to launch the application in their browser, which is seriously cool. We’ve designed it to work with touch screens so you just need one press to drill down on the data.

So far it has gone really well & now that we’ve done the basics I’m hoping to get some innovative visualizations in there too. Watch this space…!

Update 1: “The better part of valour is discretion…” – I’ve decided to remove the video for now while I sort out whether my employers are happy for me to show it. With a bit of luck it will be back soon! Joe

Update 2: It seems that it is fine to air this after all.
