Paris and the Data Mind

Paris and the Data Mind:

This was my life. My life just a few months after getting a Fitbit. I spent evenings hunting Google Maps for walks—new walks, green-lined, meandering walks. Work continued to bring me to new cities, and with each unexplored urban space I felt my chest tighten with excitement; fresh ground to explore, more steps to be had.

Walking is different than biking or driving down a street. Heads stuck in smartphones, we miss the humanity of the scenes we pass. Yet using that same technology we can call up with atomic granularity the time and place of a meeting with a dear friend years back. Sometimes those two spaces collide—technology creating an almost psychic, projected awareness of the here and now.

Cada vez que releo este artículo me dan ganas de salir a caminar. :)
