TEDxCambridge + Mastering Metadata

On Friday, Jack and I had a chance to attend talks at TEDxCambridge, focusing on local research and the Cantabrigian spirit.

One of our favorite talks came from Deepak Jagdish and Daniel Smilkov, researchers at MIT’s Media Lab and the people behind Immersion, a tool that allows you to map and manipulate your email metadata.

I’m still sifting through my own data, but the information pulled just from recipients, senders, time and date is fascinating. (Jack and I have shared over 6,000 emails in our 7.6 year email history—and that doesn’t count AIM chats.)

Log in to pull your own data, and if you don’t want Immersion to save anything, be sure to select “log out and delete.” Enjoy!
