A Year (to-be) in Numbers

Inspired in part by the 2005 and 2006 annual reports by Nicholas Felton, and by a desire to be clever and crafty with my 2007 holiday card, I’ve been thinking about collecting a year’s worth of statistics.

So… What kind of statistics would you want to collect of yourself (or of me) over a year? I’m thinking of going with a graph theme and collecting data that would show well on a linear scale with a point for each day of the year.

In considering all of the collectible data I’ve come up with this so far – what else would you add?

Food and Drink
Ate at Whole Foods / Ate out / Cooked home
Drank something other than water

Took medicine
Felt ill
Saw a doctor

Worked from home / at the office
Worked on a weekend day
Conference / Vacation
Keystrokes typed (This would just be neat to know 🙂

Miles flown
Miles driven
What country I’m in

Went on a date
Bought a plan / plant died
Finished reading a book
Dollars spent

In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife. In 525,600 minutes – how do you measure a year in the life? How about love? How about love? How about love? Measure in love. Seasons of love.”
