Jerry Blossom now twitter- 'n' tumblr-ing

I just understood how twitter works - I guess that makes me a "late adopter".
Addendum 17/12/10: For reasons of completeness, I'm also (redundantly) tumblr-ing.

Personal Stats for Annual Reports

New York-based graphic designer Nicholas Felton statistically evaluates and visualizes data from his everyday life. Ever since 2005, he publishes annual reports of the activities he records in painstaking 15 minute segments. He even developed Daytum, a tool which allows you to do the same. A video describing his approach can be found over at Slate (via Mo's twitter).
Addendum 15/12/2010: Cf. also the third section of Radiolab's "Fate and Fortune" episode covering computational linguistics on for example personal email archives.
