Partly inspired by Brad Feld’s recent blog post “My 2011 By The Numbers” and of course Nick Felton’s “Feltron Annual Reports” – for those who know me, I’m passionate about amazing “indie” coffee and I’m a personal data obsessed nerd. Mix those two together and this is what you get. Special thanks goes to my friend Malcolm Bastien for introducing me to Daytum 🙂
At last! After a full year (since January 2nd 2011) of painstakingly collecting and manually entering my personal data for stuff I found to be most important (one of them being coffee of course) into Daytum, I can tell a story through numbers – sheer and glorious data that I sliced and diced for my own interest and maybe even yours if you want to peek into my unhealthy obsession of personal data and coffee.
Through this data I’ve collected through Daytum’s web app, iPhone app and mobile web view as well as Mint.com’s web, iPhone and Android apps, I’ve been able to capture an almost 360 degree view for the 365 days of 2011 of my coffee tendencies. From number of speciality coffee drinks I’ve had, the different types, the time between drinks and the amount spent. Save for location data, which was a bit of an after thought after I deleted my Foursquare account.. but that’s another story.
