DailyDirt: Personal Analytics.. On The Rise?
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
We’ve talked about lifelogging a bit before, where people record nearly every moment of their lives (and make it public somehow). Ignoring Facebook statuses from people’s running shoes is just the beginning. Here are a few more examples.
- Stephen Wolfram posted an analysis of his emails/keystrokes/phonecalls for the past decade or so. If he ever publishes the raw data, it’ll be pretty simple to figure out all of his passwords. [url]
- XKCD covers lifeloggers with a nice comic that summarizes a typical technogeek dad. “I’m glad I’m not the clueless person I was 5 years ago, but now I don’t want to get any older.” [url]
- Ben Fogarty plotted his life in a stacked area chart from age 0 to 32. It’s a cool chart, but the area under “listening” as an activity makes it look like he went deaf at age 27. [url]

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.
