The New York Times wrote a great piece describing a new research initiative called The Human Project. Its goal is to collect data on 10,000 people for 20 years covering everything from diet, exercise, social habits, computer use, and more. The expectation is we will learn more about the human condition than ever before based on the sheer volume of data available.
