24Days: So That's Where My Online Time Goes....
Posted on Saturday, August 22, 2009 | No Comments
I've just read on TechCrunch about an MIT Project known as "The Personas Project" (click here to visit), and I just had to give it a whirl!
It's very basic, all you need to do is tap in your name and it goes and searches the web for all your different activities and attempts to create a profile about you from what it finds. Now, that's all very well if your a big internet user like myself, but even when I typed "Craig Butters" into the search engine, it created a 50/50 profile split between "sports" and "something else". 50% sports? Me? I don't think so!
The second time I used "craigbutters", after my Twitter account and this website, that brought up some much more interesting results:
As you can see though, a lot of my time is spent online, and my next biggest activity is "social", "news" and "Travel". I'm not quite sure where the "Travel" comes into it, but apparently it's pretty much up there. The rest is pretty standard stuff gleamed from my Twitter profile - interestingly though, the last category is "accident", which is presumably from my blogging of Mr Felipe Massa's Ferrari accident a few weeks ago and not some morbid facination or accident proneness I have developing!
