The information designer Nicholas Felton likes data: the more data, the better. That’s why for a number of years, he has released a compilation of information that he has collected and analyzed about himself, including where he’s gone, the books he’s read and whom he’s talked to.
For this year’s annual report, which he began working on in early 2013, he decided to focus only on his communications. In light of the news last summer about the National Security Agency’s surveillance program, his report may have new relevance. (New York Times)
