DAVID GLOYN-COX

Working within the Software Development and Business Intelligence sphere (though that covers pretty much anything) but pushing the envelope of process, systems and interactions to deliver salient usable and simple solutions.

Interface and API wrangler, somehow I will make the systems talk and show their true face. I love scripting and small application design development and production.

Really I enjoy anything where I can merge computers and people hopefully making life easier for both sides. Give me problem and I will deliver you a solution.

Slides and Video: Metrics that Matter with Chris Geoghegan

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics” / Metrics

Net2van was privileged to have Peer Giving’s Chris Geoghegan share a framework for web analytics at our September 3 meetup.

Chris has bad news. Most of the time you spend looking at your analytics is probably in vain. There is too much data that tells you too little information. You thought analytics was all about using information to make better decisions, but it isn’t working. How do you go beyond just giving yourself a nice pat on the back with how many visitors you got last month?

In this presentation Chris showed how charities and non-profits can select and track the metrics that truly matter and how they can use them to make and confirm decisions that matter.

Why I host Net Tuesday Vancouver

HUGE thanks to Darian Kovacs for putting the event together. This is the first time that a monthly meetup was planned, promoted and hosted without my involvement, and I couldn’t be happier that Net Tuesday is evolving from a solo project into a self-sustaining volunteer-led institution.

– Eli

P.S. I’m also grateful for Chad Leaman‘s good ears.

Net Tuesday meetup: Network organizations create better online campaigns

Net Tuesday is proud to have Communicopia’s Jason Mogus presenting at our February 7 meetup. NOTE: We expect this event to be very popular, so registration is capped. Please RSVP to confirm your attendance.

RSVP on Meetup.com

There has been a sea change recently creating new models for how social change organizations (or start up businesses) structure themselves to accomplish a social good. Network organizations, typically those “born after the Internet”, are smaller, nimble, less hierarchical, highly collaborative and deeply social by nature. Their leadership, culture, structure, programs, and outcomes are often quite different from those of traditionally structured NGO’s.

As these structures are more aligned with the fundamental organizing principles of the web, done right this enables these organizations to punch far above their weight online. In this session we will discuss:

  • the differences between network orgs and more traditional NGO’s
  • why network orgs are an adaptation to the unique challenges and opportunities of our times
  • why traditional NGO’s struggle with managing digital innovation
  • why network orgs create better online campaigns – including many examples!
  • some fundamental principles of network centric campaigns

Come with your own examples and expect a fulsome discussion on the benefits and limitations of this controversial hypothesis.
