One Year At A Time

I found the Feltron Biennial Report to pretty interesting yet a bit OCD. At first I was a bit confused as to what I was looking at but after exploring the website I realized that this was about a guy who logged everything he does ranging from the average time he had a beer, to how many places he visited in a year. I think it would be very cool to have data like this about me for a year, although I would be a bit afraid of what the results might show.  For example I would probably be disgusted to learn how many hours a week I log on to Facebook.  I also don’t know if I would have the self-discipline to log all of that information. The reading is a good example of how to use graphs and charts to display information.

This article reminded me in particular of a video I watched on YouTube in English 100 my freshman year of college. The video shows somebody who took a picture of themselves every morning for six years. Although the medium of presentation is quite different, they both show events over the course of years in a very interesting medium and in a way that most people wouldn’t think of.
