Bryan Bishop tracks every social interaction he has with anyone, in person, on the phone, and online – and he’s been doing this since 2005. He discovered that he talks 60% of the time, and mostly interacts with people online. Also, the more people he talks to, the more lines of code he writes! Bryan has thousands of friends, and he wanted an easier way to update all of them about his life, so he developed a way to automatically compile emails to all of his contacts based on their tags of interest. Check out his excellent, data-driven talk below. (Filmed at the Bay Area QS Show&Tell Meetup #19 at Singularity University.)
