Mr. Wolfram, I bow to your data

in Neat Visualizations

When I created My Working Life, I thought I had collected a pretty good data set on my work activities.  Then, I saw this blog post from Stephen Wolfram.  The man recorded every single keystroke he typed for “a number of years” – over 100 million keystrokes.  What I admire isn’t just the fact that Mr. Wolfram stored this data, but the elegant way he visualizes the data within this post.  It’s incredible to see just how productive one man (albeit, one brilliant man), can be in any given 24-hour period, while still maintaining a two hour dinner window with his family.  Something tells me he doesn’t watch a lot of television.
