New: Visual Scope Identifier

Yesterday i added visual identifiers to better identify the currently selected Scope:

One continous line for the Local Scope

Local Scope

…and a point-based circle for the Global Scope:

Global Scope

Both markers resize and and adjust position accordingly to the base vortex movements* - so it bottomline looks as one homogenous part. I thought this would be a handy and useful visual clue.


Oscillating Circuit: LC Charging & Discharging

After implementing Low-Pass and High-Pass filter mappings last week on the global and local scope, I took the time to focus more on coils and capacitors. Because this entire topic is already quite complex, let me explain its importance in simple terms: Capacitors, Coils, and Resistors are the three main building blocks of electronics. There are about two dozen other components, but these three are fundamental. Together with chips, they account for over 90% of the action on any circuit board.

Release Nearing: Recent Updates

So first off, I can report further success in correctly mapping BPMN 2.0. Previously, I extended it to the Cycle format, but yesterday I managed to identify the Sub-Process and generic task difference. I also managed to replace the XOR-Gateway with the correct AND and OR variants, also called Parallel- and Inclusive gateway. If you’re a bit into Logic Gates, you know that the actual default Gateway in BPMN, the Exclusive Gateway, is essentially an XOR-Gate.

ISO/IEC 20000:2018 Foundation

After taking the 27001 Foundation last week, I decided to give it a try and peek into ISO 20000 as well. I had passed an ITIL V3 Foundation cert almost a decade ago and figured it would be a good fit to refresh some insights on IT Service Management aka ITSM. It’s somehow bread and butter to a lot of organizations, and 20k is also a standard you can certify against.

ISO/IEC 27001:2022 Foundation

I recently had a short gig at a local internet carrier where I got in touch with the topic of ISO/IEC 27001 - which is fundamentally relevant to the protection of information. Briefly, the standard deals with the implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of an Information Security Management System, abbreviated to ISMS. This system ensures that standard measures (‘controls’) are implemented so that information is safe. I never fully understood how Risks, Controls, Processes, and Policies worked together in a unified way and how they fit into the bigger picture.

Recent Updates: 4-Stroke Engine, Economic Bubble

I managed to do quite a chunk of fixes and updates the recent days: Technically i fixed the alignment of images at Perspective switch while completely horizontal I cleaned up the JSON language files with a custom C# Console Application i built: It calls additionally Azure API’s for translations if needed. I might extend that tool in the future, it was quite useful and saved a lot of manual work. On the end of descriptions there was progress as well:

Recent Updates: Fourier-Transform, Sorting & BPMN

My current job leaves me only limited time to pursue the model but i try to squeeze in the hours where i can: Recent updates include refining Sorting, which fundamentally offers the two options of Ascending and Descending. However due to Perspective it became clear that it’s not an easy win. I’ve figured that descending sorting aligns with both doing the right thing and doing things right. Beyond that, its utility isn’t obvious as both Center and Periphery have Ascending and Descending assigned dependent on perspective.

Network Redesign

This is not really related to the ToE like the rest of the blog, but who cares? It’s my site and my blog. If you’re into networking, this might be interesting for you anyway. Today, I remodeled my home network. I was not happy with the old design, even though it worked fine. This is basically my development environment, and it bothered me that I did not have a clean structure.

Risk: Probability & Impact

Today I figured out the correct way to model the Probability-Impact Matrix that was used to illustrate the Risks Description. Initially, before I “got” perspective, I had only the probability-impact line going in a y=-x function way. I was always rather unhappy with it, even though it -sort of- checked out. But impact and probability were basically fixed on that line and seemed ultimately not completely right. Once it clicked with me I was able to fix this within minutes.

Eulers Identity: Suspicions

Of course Euler’s Formula and, subsequently, Euler’s Identity are very close to the WTF-Model. I’ve had suspicions on the whereabouts of the different constants, namely e, i, and π. Even though it’s perspective dependent, it is pretty clear to me that i, the imaginary unit, is directly in the center. But from the peripheral aka global perspective, as from the local one, i is replaced by the prime numbers. I stumbled upon e, Euler’s number (2.
