Hi Richard,
Did he mention how the data gathering was undertaken? Nightly entries into a moleskine? The wearing of a pedometer?
Was the collecting part something he enjoyed (like Nick Hornby's music lists), or a burden (like my financial accounts)?

Hi Richard,

I was going to ask how the talk went, so I'm glad to know it was a success for all involved. Did you put the heart in the cheesecake for Nicholas? Very artistic.


Andrew: a good question, could have done with you there. Didn't ask "how" but as to "why", the impression I got was that it was a natural inclination and only very, very occasionally a chore; Nicholas, if I remember correctly, did say that noting every street name he walked down was a bit of a bind, but did make an interesting map (I could be mis-paraphrasing there).

David: we should have got them to make it a pie chart.

I'm speechless. I wish I was there… No record (mp3/avi)?
Aaaarrgh, I feel like like a Prince fan in the '80s who missed a gig in a club.


"Cheesecake eaten in Belfast by Nicholas Felton: 1" fucking hilarious.

Interesting to hear about the development, thanks for writing up.
You have to naturally the motivation for that sort of thing don't you, I tried playing with Daytum for a bit but it ground me down pretty quick. Partly because it feels a bit unneccessary though - when you have things like last.fm keeping records for you already.

Never thought of the Paul Auster link before but definitely, yes!

P.S. That Cheesecake looks amazing!! MMMM


Well done on the posters, I saw them up all around Uni. A real shame I couldn't be there, as we were on a Viscom class trip to Paris :-(


CBC Radio's Spark has an interview with Felton on their blog. http://tinyurl.com/cj5324
