DDP Midterm – My Time at ITP Through the Gmail API

In Designing for Data Personalization, ITP

I wanted to focus on email as my “dry” data set for the Midterm. It’s difficult to think about what sort of visualizations would be valuable to a user with regards to their inbox but I landed on the idea of using email as a way to see how you are allocating your time. In a retrospective manner, it can give a user a sense of what they showed the most interest in, what areas they want to spend less time on and what they want to devote more time to. I used the Gmail API to retrieve my email data for my @nyu.edu address.
