Nicholas Feltron: A Life

image from Feltron 2006 annual report

Socrates said "The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates doesn't need to worry about Nicholas Feltron. Feltron is a New York-based graphic designer who documents his life in austere diagrammatic "annual reports". Feltron's 2006 Annual Report is now on-line, and it's filled with piles of info-porn...percentage breakdowns of types of alcohol consumed, number of e-mails sent and received, most consecutive days spent entirely on the island of Manhattan, all sorts of cool and quirky stuff.

I no longer worry about the meaninglessness of life.
