Nicholas Felton is back with his 2008 personal Annual Report. Always worth a look.

Daytum, your daily data

Daytum is a site for keeping track of your life, a "home for collecting and communicating your daily data". For a glimpse of how Daytum might work, check out Daytum founder Nicholas Felton's personal annual reports. Somewhat related: Trixie Tracker, the online baby tracking software. The first person I remember tracking their data in this way online was Erik Benson on his Morale-O-Meter.

Update: And Moodstats from K10K...I forgot about (the dearly departed) Moodstats! (thx, nick)

feltonIn 2007, 30-year-old New York City-based graphic designer Nicholas Felton had 58 vacation days, performed 2 karaoke songs, spent 4.7 days on planes, read 26% more book pages than he did in 2006, ran 190.5 miles, and thought Josh & Ellen's wedding was the best of the year. You may view his annual report here; the print version costs a mere $5 and ships in February. In this year's report, just as in his 2006 report, Felton noted he may have consumed alcoholic drinks that went unrecorded. CHEATER.
