Fintech’s the hottest, hype-est term out there. And Bitcoin and Blockchain are rolling off the lips and tips of every financier’s tongue.
But how does Bitcoin work? Perhaps the infographic would shed some light on it.
I didn’t know what to ask. So I just explored the data willy-nilly. In part, to try Tableau on different datasets; in part, to quickly generate visualisations to find questions.
Here’s what I found:
I’ve put up the visualisations on Tableau Public: How often is SG Bus Leh Used?
Appreciate any feedback on them!
Great for shops and restaurants if you’re looking to get spur-on-the-moment traffic.

Research isn’t all that tough. But it is time consuming and the information deluge on the web doesn’t make it any easier.
I found this question on Quora: What is a good strategy when researching a topic? And thought it’s a nice segway into how to research.
What do you think?
Answer by Edwin Tam:
I find that there’s general and specific research.
In your case, you seem to be looking for specific information: e.g. did this invention exist? How do I know if my giga-watt-powered Oatmealy gadget can actually grind Oatmeal?
I usually do the following:
- Identify research dimensions: Environment, Competitors, Technology, Own
- Write a list of questions for each dimension
- Hit up the library/Google/Academic papers/forums to get answers quickly. This helps me winnow out unanswerable questions, specify questions, and develop other questions from the earlier list
- Repeat 3 until happy. But now, I look for stats, data, and if necessary, conduct some primary research (e.g. surveys etc). I’d usually give myself 3 days to do the research. Otherwise, screensuck!
