Project progress report 02. Systemic approach and causal loop model

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

A causal loop model has been developed in order to help understand the complex systemic structure of poverty in all its dimension. System diagramming is here a loose term used to describe the activity of conceptually representing and visualizing a system in its constitutive elements: the elements, the relationships and the system boundary distinguishing what does and does not belong to the set.
The assumption of this qualitative exercise is that poverty, and its dimensions, are the result of the dynamics between a wide variety of factors from macro-politic, to the personal behavioral patterns.
The key element of the visualization are the factors and the variables. They are the environment attributes and characteristics that have an influence level of poverty.

How to laugh at design failure!

Monday, October 6th, 2008

During any design activities a lot of ideas fail and it is very difficult to understand how and why it happened.
The Mister O comics strip by Lewis Trondheim lead me to reflect on the experience of failing and to consider how to learn from it. Using the irony of this language it is possible to step forward the personal involvement and clearly ponder upon these situations we, as designers face every day.
I was so excited about this theme that I suggested it to a student as a subject for a final master thesis. He refused, of course.

Media System | Scenario, originally uploaded by densitydesign.

The map shows a possible scenario formulated from the study about the Media System Map in theItalian area. We pointed out that in the setting of the editorial groups there are few principal actors,who act in the editorial field, in particular in thebook market: GeMS, Mondadori e RCS.
Their receipts, relative and absolute, turn outto be quite down in relation to the other editorial groups that concern with other media. Howeverthese editorial groups detain the monopoly of themain publishing houses in the italian marketplace.

Infrastructure System | Scenario, originally uploaded by densitydesign.

Initially, when the committee is formed, we have taken the commitment to respond promptly to all questions, the technical questions, requests for clarification and claim that the participants in the committee vsebujejo gradually. At first it was not easy to convince the offices of the province that had to respond to all at once. But gradually the mechanism was engaged, so obviously imperfect (given the high number of observations prevented), but acceptable. This step was very important. The committee members, accustomed to the fact that the authorities do not respond almost ever, were very impressed by the fact that in this case the answer came almost forever.

Media System | Scenario | Telecom: more than a paper.

Media System | Scenario, originally uploaded by densitydesign.

The map of Italian media system present in the foreground the role of the publishing market and its major players, compared to the chain of contents. This level in the production chain is characterized, within the diagram, through the relationship between editorial portfolio and absolute revenues, from which emerge the relative revenues. The critical analysis of this strategic dimension, offers comparisons between the different types of publisher, starting on the basis of these observations and deductions, precise ideas of the possible changes of the system. In particular, noting the portion where are placed the publisher’s televisions shows that Telecom is in disadvantage compared with its competitors: Mediaset and RAI. Despite editorial choices rather than positive in terms of uniformity and consistency of editorial contents, Telecom is a minor publisher, also considering its portfolio, related exclusively to the television and the Internet interfaces.
