themeTricia WangWhy Big Data Needs Thick DataBig Data need Thick Data.We need to come up with a new catchy term for qualitative work in industry. Qualittaive work is being devalued in the rise of Big Data. Integrating qual and quant is where the magic of coming up with insights on how to best serve people. How your #bigdata project will benefit from #thickdata5 reasons why #BigData needs #ThickDataWhy #ThickData is the Data Scientist's newest weapondata scientists, qualitative researchers, business analysts@triciawangthick data, qualitative, big data, health, research, quantitative, ethnography, stories Global Tech EthnographerI'm a global tech ethnographer. I co-founded PL Data, a start-up that designs human-centered research systems by integrating data science and social science.


With more than 15 years’ experience working with designers, engineers, and scientists, I have a particular interest in designing human-centered systems. I advise corporations and startups on using Thick Data--quantitative, ethnographic research methods that uncover emotions, stories, and meaning--to improve strategy, policy, products, and services. Organisations I have worked with include P&G, Nokia, GE, Kickstarter, the United Nations and NASA.

contributionJosephLindleycase study, highwire editionPost Disciplinary EthnographyDescribing how the researchers at the 'post disciplinary' HighWire research centre have intersected with ethnography.What HighWire (and its research) is all about.The range of research @ HighWire.Why, how, and what value ethnography brings to HighWire (and vice versa).The latest @ethnomatters edition is themed around the @HighWireDTC and the digital economy research they doIt turns out academics quite like the less academic ways of doing ethnography... Well, they say they do @HighWireDTCHow does ethnography impact upon 'post disciplinary' research at the @HighWireDTC?Those interested in innovation in the digital economy, innovative ways of using ethnography, post disciplinary (and interdisciplinary) research approaches.@joegalendigital economy, messy methods, post disciplinary research, innovationDesign fiction researcherI am currently completing my PhD which addresses the emerging speculative design technique, design fiction. I have had various careers including as an analyst and software developer, artist, musician, and as a manager in a healthcare organization. The thread that connects all of my disparate endeavours is as a creative problem solver. I like to look at one thing in terms of another, synthesize the meaning of the amalgam, and then put those insights to work. The same sentiment is embodied in 'Lemon Difficult' a strategic technology consultancy built around speculative and ethnographic methods.joseph.lindley@gmail.comYes

Ding’s interest in degree collecting has also made it possible for her to live in Shanghai, Dundee, Lancaster, and Manchester. Through these journeys, Ding discovered her real passion lays in people. Therefore her PhD research explores the role of people in smart cities and how to effectively bring people in to the smart city agendanopeding.w9911@gmail.comin-progess

contributionRobertPottsindustry / academiaWhat's the matter with ethnography?What's the Matter? How can ethnographers use matter to embody the things that matter?The answer, surprisingly involves video games, death squads, documentaries, cancer, cocktail napkins & Bowie.Different modes of interpretation, tools and methods of communication bring value to ethnography, they provide fecund territory for innovation.Film making processes, video games and architecture all share common interpretive processes with ethnography and can be greatly augmented by the work of ethnographers.Rich, mobile and insightful. The future of ethnography lies in the way we interpret, share and communicate insight.@robearspace asks What is the matter with ethnography? for @ethnomattersWhat do videogames, death squads, documentaries, cancer, cocktail napkins and Bowie have to do with each other?Innovators in digital and creative industries, the ethnographic community both in academia and industry. Ideally our work aims to bridge the two. Impactful project, driven by research.@robearspaceethnography, narrative, industry, academia, arefacts, boundary objects, film, interactvitiy, organisations, boundariesOrganisational researcher, designer, lecturer and film maker.Robert Potts is a HighWire PhD at Lancaster University. Trained in design and visual communication, he teaches and researches design. As a creative director, he consults on design projects and makes innovative films about innovation. His research uses ethnography and narrative to explore innovation at boundaries. He investigates creative, critical projects and organisational environments.r.potts@lancaster.ac.ukYES

contributionDhruvSharmacase study, highwire edition, op edEverybody's an ethnographerEverybody has innate observational and interpretive (ethnographic) expertise that can be harnessed and expert ethnographers can help in finding ways of tapping into this resource.Everybody has innate ethnographic expertisePeople do this naturally and may not be aware of it but ethnographers do it more systematically and for a purpose.The role of ethnographers in future should be focussed on developing strategies to utilise people's natural ethnographic abilities.@dhruvsharma101 wants to put ethnographers out of their jobs! Argues that Everybody Is An Ethnographer @ethnomattersWhy @dhruvsharma101 thinks Everybody Is An Ethnographer?Are you #Hanuman or one of his peer? Asks @dhruvsharma101 when he says Everybody Is An Ethnographer @ethnomatters@dhruvsharma101 swears at #designethnography. Calls it a 'bastard child' of design and ethnography @ethnomatters@dhruvsharma101ethnography, anthropology, mythology, innate expertise, design ethnographyDesign Ethnographer, Anthropologist
Dhruv has a background in anthropology, has worked in various countries as an ethnographer, and also holds a master’s degree in design ethnography from Dundee University. His research at HighWire is concerned with radical digital interventions designed to address issues of loneliness among the elderly. Being immersed in the post disciplinary environment at HighWire, Dhruv has come to the conclusion that, perhaps, everyone is an ethnographer.
