Reporter is a new application for understanding the things you care about. With a few randomly timed surveys each day, Reporter can illuminate aspects of your life that might be otherwise unmeasurable.
The biggest issue I have with these types of “quantified self” apps is the chore of having to input data regularly. Fortunately, this app reminds you to do this every now and again via push notifications. It also supports automatic measurements such as time, location, and ambient noise. Not bad.
A Kickstarter for a card game made my Max Temkin from Cards Against Humanity, amongst others. Already funded, with 29 days to go.
MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language — so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son’s life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch “gaaaa” slowly turn into “water.” Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn.
An old one, but remarkable nonetheless.

Hi everyone! Welcome to our stream where our fish, Grayson Hopper, plays a Pokemon game. Unfortunately, we don’t have a dedicated light for Grayson at night as he lives in a tiny dorm room and we would rather not sleep with the light on. :( But in the future we will be getting him a dedicated lamp and improving the quality of the stream to include recent inputs determined by the motion tracking. Things can move a little slow, so another option we’re considering is making the system distributed where we have a site where you can provide a fish stream link and we’ll include it in the controlling.
Of course. This was the only logical next step.
