Nicholas Felton is a numbers guy.  Since 2005 or so he has archived data or his daily life annually and translated that information into beautiful graphic form - the Feltron Annual Report.  Each static dataset, a seemingly unrelatable web of information, adds up to a vivd snapshot of Felton's life on a yearly basis.  Of particular note is his 2010 Annual Report, which is dedicated to statistically describing the life of his father who passed away during that year.  Despite being a rigid collection of numbers, statistics like "number of photos featured wearing a tie"; "most frequently visited lunch locations"; "number of exclamation points used" really begin to paint a vivid picture and allow us to piece together a character in our heads.  For a bit lighter content representation of Feltron, the travel journal "Hello China, Goodbye Tibet" is worth skimming.
