2014 in numbers

Since the very day Martin Thörnkvist showed me The Feltron report back in the summer of 2008, I’ve been intrigued by life logging and the quantified self movement.

I’m by no means extreme and way too lazy to do any manual work to track some things properly. I’ve tried to track my calories intake & manually enter every penny spent and failed fatally. But when I was writing the 2014 in review and 2014 in Music I saw some numbers that made me want to dig deeper.

The numbers themselves does not mean much. But we can see patterns and understand ourselves and our behaviour from data that it’s harder to see without it.

I truly admire the work of Nicholas Feltron and the reports he make, and at some point I had a very vague idea doing a report like his. But the amount of time, patience and knowledge he’s got and pour into the work, I lack. Therefore, here’s a non-designed basic report of 2014 by the numbers.
