My data log for Sunday Feb 8th. The list includes only “collected” data–does data exist before it is recorded? (if a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?).
Some examples of non-recorded/non-observed data that I created include: vital signs, sleep habits, eating habits, actions, trash generation, movement patterns, items in my environment (e.g furniture), time use, products/consumables used, sewing machine use, radio use, newspaper/book reading speed, typing speed.
I also noticed that the amount of data I created on a very quiet weekend day at home was significantly less than the amount of data I created on a weekday working at school. Interacting with society creates more information!
