The health app has no idea it took 5000 steps to get from the restaurant on Bleeker to that bar Helen likes.
And then somewhere else.
If you give me a sec, I can pull up the name of the dive. Because I keep track.
Since 2010, I’ve worked hard to accomplish:
- 378 drinking establishments
- 98 museums or art galleries
- 103 music or performing art venues
We vacationed in Florida a couple weeks ago with some of Kenny’s longtime buddies. They were polite enough to insist I had “taught them some great new iPhone tricks.” I knew this was code for “holy hell you’ve got a problem.”
It could have been a lot worse, but luckily I kept the menace in check. The only app I showed off was the one to track how many glasses of water I drink every day.
But seriously, they're all doctors and we were in blazing tropical heat. They should clearly have been a little more appreciative of my fastidious efforts to avoid a tedious medical emergency.
Since it's all about me at the moment, I'd be remiss without mentioning:
- 148,000 songs since 2007, by 4,454 artists.
- Top artist is Minus the Bear at 2,453 plays.
- Most played track is the Immigrant Song as covered by Trent Reznor, Karen O and Atticus Ross at 416 plays. And counting.
Cause for Concern! I listened to 33,000 songs in 2013, but have experienced a precipitous decline, only listening to 5000 songs in 2015.
Because now I’m into podcasts. I subscribe to 61 podcasts. Sadly, podcast tracking is really suboptimal. This is a terrible terrible state of affairs.
Now I’m dipping a toe into audio books. Audible dedicates a whole page to data visualization: How many listening hours per day/week/month. How many books finished. It’s all important. I listen at 1.25x speed for 1.25x the derring-do.
