EVIDENCE

10000ft Dashboards

Most professionals building a long-term career or impact in one specific topic collect information in a structured way.

Academics maintain a detailed list of citations. Beat reporters use structured journalism — a list of events, people, examples, locations that they encounter as part of everyday reporting. Policy makers, researchers, consultants, etc. maintain or create datasets to make their arguments. Similarly, creative professionals — marketers, copywriters, designers — maintain swipe files or mood boards of the brilliant work they see. Their goal isn’t to copy but to be inspired.

10000ft Dashboards helps them publish these lists in filterable and sortable dashboards on their WordPress website.

Why publish lists?

Become a go-to resource for experts who too are obsessing on the topic of your study.

Signal intent to focus: Evidence (or lists) isn’t something one can cook up. It takes significant investment to collect and maintain it.

Longitudinal view: When you look at an issue in arcs of 3-5 years, these databases will help you observe patterns.

Persuasive: Facts establish credibility as they can be verified. It opens opportunity of dialogue with folks from the other side of the aisle.
