My Quantified Media Diet

I produced a 12 page book summarizing my findings. It is a limited edition of 200 copies with some of the charts above and more. It was printed on a risograph and looks really amazing. Order a copy of the book here.

3. Media by Topic

Those charts do a good job of illustrating when. With some analysis of my data, I was able to derive the topic of each piece of content to see the what. No matter the medium, sports was the most prominent topic. I went a layer deeper and tried to understand which sports get the most attention and in which form of media.

5. “Songs Played After the Most Played Song” chart

My most played song of the year was COME MEH WAY by Sudan Archives with 31 total plays. I looked at the next nine songs played after that song, thinking it might give me a snapshot of my listening behavior.
