Electronic Version 6 Mo. Review Metrics

Hi Jessica,

Here’s an electronic version of the paper document I gave you and Dr. Rials this afternoon.

Besides having some numbers for my 6th month review, part of the reason I put together this document is to assist with the quarterly report on my IT Specialist activities.

When you get a chance, can you let me know what additional work / refinement you need on this information to make it useful for the quarterly report?

One thing I was thinking of doing is actually counting the *total* reach of posts on Facebook since October (as compared to "average" reach of pots. My interest in that metric is total reach should be substantially higher than the average reach over the six month period (which was 20).

The reason I did not include that metric here is that Facebook doesn’t permit us to export that metric for analysis, it only lets us look at individual reach of posts.

We can get the numbers, and I think we should since they are much more impressive than the "average" that Facebook reports as a synthesis.

It’ll just take data transcription by hand (or extensive data clean-up / formatting wizardry by machine), which is time-intensive.

Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
