Michael Surtees is a product design director and practitioner of user experience design (UXD) based in NYC. He has been fortunate to work with many great companies such as Forbes, Thomson Reuters, Panasonic, AIGA National, Optimum Cable, Nooka, Daylife, Etsy and Undercurrent among many others. Currently he is the head of design at Dataminr for News, Finance and Public Sector. Below are examples of his process that included work with use cases, strategy, information architecture, wireframes, prototyping, visual design, user testing and product management.

Dataminr for News

NYT Article announcing Dataminr for News: Earlier this year, several producers at CNN received an alert from a new digital news gathering tool that they were testing: A teenager in Los Angeles had posted a tweet saying that the pop music heartthrob Justin Bieber had been arrested.

CNN’s Los Angeles bureau followed up on the tip by calling the appropriate local precinct. The police confirmed that Mr. Bieber had just been arrested on burglary charges, but wanted to know how the cable news network could possibly have known that.

The answer is Dataminr, a software tool designed specifically to analyze billions of Twitter postings for patterns that could indicate breaking news. On Tuesday, Dataminr becomes commercially available to news organizations, some of which — like CNN and Gannett — have already been testing the software.
