Personal pie charts

with 10 comments

I’m currently working on something that involves sorting out lots of information into graphs and charts. I’m not going to mention what that is right now, in case it doesn’t transpire; but while doing it, I started thinking about how elements of my own life can be viewed as pie charts. So I explored that theme. And this is what I came up with: Personal pies.

  4. Excellent. I was recently in a conversation where we talked about using maps to check off the states and countries we’d visited. We disagreed on what qualified as having been to a place–if plane changes count, my number would be much higher than I consider it to really be.

    If you came to the Washington D.C. area on your next visit to the U.S., you could knock out 3-4 more states within the span of a few hours. But, then you have the dilemma of what to do with D.C. itself: not a state, but shouldn’t it count for something?

    I’d grant you that afternoon in Istanbul, provided it was spent outside of an airport.

    Thanks for the pies!

  5. I would say airports don’t count, but a good rule of thumb for me is if I’ve eaten or drank something there, then I’ve been there.

  6. The pie about having a driving license touched me: I just got mine last week! (and you know I am not 16 years old…).

    Great pics of yourself on the top! What a cute baby you were…

  9. Very cool. I’m inspired.

    Curious, what program do you use to create such sexy pie charts?

  10. Thanks, Tom.
    I did the calculations and original pie charts in Excel, took a screenshot and traced over those screenshots in Photoshop.
