2013: My Year In Numbers

Jan 11

I like data. There I said it. But the caveat is I like data that I choose and create, not necessarily data that someone thinks is important or useful. That may just be a topic I’ll explore in a future post. This post is more about fun and playing with data.

Last year I created this video for 2012 and decided maybe I’d replicate it for 2013. My plan was to simply work off the keynote I created and swap out numbers and a few images. Should be easy. For whatever reason, I could not find the original keynote file. Thus I started from scratch but essentially recreated the same video. The process is to create a keynote presentation with all the builds and animations, export it out to imovie, add your music and voila. While it was more work than I wanted, probably about 6 hours total, I do like the possibilities of keynote for other things like kinetic typography. I know the pros will use After Effects which does the best job, but keynote and powerpoint can probably get pretty close.

At any rate, here’s my year in numbers.
