Method In Madness

Trump’s very presence is chaos, but a visualization of unstructured data such as the Presidential debates sure does help identify the ‘Method in Madness’. An Ivy League professor looking at Gramener’s  visualization of the 2nd Presidential debate said, ‘A remarkable way to break down and follow what often seems chaotic and random.’


At the CNN debate, with every finger pointed at him for the sex-tape controversy, Trump tried his best to deviate attention using his favorite fear mongering topic – ‘ISIS’. There were at least 19 instances where Trump mentioned ‘ISIS’ while Hillary had mentioned the same only 5 times or so. For more insights do play around with our visualization of the debate.

The Las Vegas debate on October 20th is do-or-die for Trump. Can Trump do anything at all to bring life to his dead campaign? Irrespective of the outcome, there’s going to be chaos at the debate – lots of it.

“Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.”

– William Shakespeare, Hamlet

To be, or not to be – and other questions


Today’s post millennial generation doesn’t waste time mulling over something. Why give your brain a workout when all of the world’s opinion for the most trivial, nonsensical query to the most hypothetical and everything in between is a ‘search’ away. Here’s a look at some of the popular ‘Should I…’ questions Indians have been asking on Google. The most popular ‘Should I’ questions in the India region have been mostly related to technology & gadgets – ‘Should I remove it?’ (Software), ‘Should I buy IPhone 5s’, ‘Should I upgrade to Windows 10’, ‘Should I update to iOS 9’ and so on.

There are also unhappy employees seeking the wisdom of the crowd asking ‘Should I quit my job?’ and you also have the strange ones – ‘Should I marry him?’, ‘Should I carry an umbrella today?’ Or how about this popular one? – ‘Should I die?’ One can only hope the search results for this one on page 1 offer some sensible advice. Pity Hamlet didn’t know about – it could have saved the Prince of Denmark a sombre soliloquy.
