Hi my name is Edward Modecki-Mellett. Around the interwebz you can usually find me posting as radicaledward101.
In March of 2011 I graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S. in Computer and Information Science. Before that I attended Bishop Watterson High School, and Our Lady of Peace.
In June of 2011, I began work at Tata Consultancy Services in Milford, OH, near Cincinnati. I enjoyed the work, but I missed Columbus quite a bit. So, in the Fall of 2012, I sought employment in my home town. I accepted a position with CITYTECH, Inc. for their new office in Columbus. We were later purchased and became a part of Olson Digital a division of ICF Olson.
In January of 2019 I left ICF Olson to join my friends at JPMorgan Chase and Co.
When I’m not working, I play video games, especially arcade titles, draw, write, and read comics. You can find an old collection of my daily drawings on Tumblr and a collection of things I’ve written and other projects on my blag (otherwise known as a “blog” or whatever).
I believe there are 3 things you need to know to interact with any system optimally: How it was intended to work. How people think it works. How it actually works. Knowing how the system was intended to work can help in finding the optimal way to interact with it. If you work with a system with the designer’s intentions in mind, you can take a path that is compatible with their future plans, and even their oversights.
I’ve been leaving a note at the end of a lot of my writing to “do the thing I want to do, not the thing that is easy.” I think I’ve actually been managing to do that a little. I may not be able to keep it up all the time (or at all!) but it really does feel good when I can do it. Above anything else, Obsidian has helped me to succeed in this area.
Content Quality Relevance Discoverability For documentation to be good it must meet all three criteria. Failure of any of the three indicates that the documentation is fundamentally flawed. It may be costing you or your organization much more than the time and energy spent producing it. Content Quality First the document must accurately communicate information. It should be up to date when written and updated regularly when the underlying information changes.
