RE: Designing an experiment to gather evidence on approaches t
Yes. The first requirement drives most of the design of a system if you count features over effort required to integrate features. Find a way to measure those and you require a traceability form. The form frames the reliability of the traceabilty. There is art at all levels of the system but for it to be a human message, and therefore a human measure to be traced, start with the GUI. When you can hand someone an app and they look at it and use it without much explanation, that's an art. The reason is the GUI has to speak music to musicians and formats to technical writers. If you can build a GUI that the user who chooses it can use with ease, you used to GUI to create a conversation and that is what art does well: communicate. That doesn't imply all art is conversation. Think of classical performance as a painting or a landscape and jazz as a conversation about the landscape while walking through it, and the difference is analogous (oh no, analogy: not evidence) The human is the most expensive and expressive component and that is where the high art is: composing for others, the spells to make the spells. So mythical but also myth-able. Not a measure of what is made but of what is made with it. Science for finding an answer. Art for picking the question. len -----Original Message----- From: Pete Cordell [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, December 29, 2011 12:45 PM To: Costello, Roger L.; Richard Salz Cc: email@example.com Subject: Re: Designing an experiment to gather evidence on approaches to designing web services I would say the difference between anecdote and evidence is the degree of traceability between the two claims. With something that is evidence you would know, in a reasonably documented way, what was done, when and by who. Anecdote has passed through so many messengers, each drawing their own conclusions and re-originating the story to emphasis what they want that it's essentially mythical.
