My posts to date of the Optician Project have focused on one activity alone: the listing of information. My posts henceforth will discuss the creative phase: the idea generation, brainstorming etc.
The techniques listed so far I would consider to be my core techniques for the listing of information:
Starting out (with a handle on the situation)
Listing key information with category-triggers
Switching the focus
Inger profiling for the listing of information
Using random words to list information
Listing information with hindsight-focus
Selecting information and stepping up the concept level
Listing information with action-units
Naming and Modified Naming
and of course, a quota-listing mentality can be applied at any stage of listing.
However, I am currently considering more techniques that can be used for listing information. These are at the thought-experiment stage, but I will outline the details on my shadow blog:
Listing multiple starts (link to come)
Listing "utterances" (link to come)
Watered-down challenges (link to come)
and then add these techniques to this blog if I find that they serve as useful information-listing tools.
There are other information-listing techniques on this blog that are worth a look and that I may also add at a later date:
Finding key facts with the suffix and stem methods
Possession-string for listing information
Ing-est for listing information
Using adverbs to list information
