Editor's Pick

Datavisualization maven Nick Felton, a former Facebook staffer and a designer known for detailing the minutiae of his life in a series of personal, extreme annual reports, debuted his latest feat of personal tracking. His 2013 annual report, which launched this week, focuses strictly on the designer's personal communications. According to his site, it's an effort "to uncover patterns and insights within the data and metadata of a large and personal data set" and includes "conversations, SMS, telephone calls, email, Facebook messages and physical mail."

The report includes names of people he communicated with during the year, to whom Mr. Felton will provide a data archive if requested.
