Description[edit | edit source]
A description of this project as introduced by Quantified Self follows:
Alastair Tse, an iOS developer at Google, recently moved to New York, and had a goal of walking every street in Manhattan. He tried a few different approaches to tracking his walks but nothing panned out, so he decided to make his own app that doesn’t use GPS or drain his phone battery. In the talk, Alastair shares his adventures in working towards the goal, and the interesting things he learned about himself from the experience.

Alastair Tse - Walk all of Manhattan
So on my website. There is a really short video and I don’t know if you can see, but basically this is a cumulative aggregate of all the paths I’ve been on months. So you can see that towards the end I started not filling in all the gaps and also I wasn’t walking much. But also I did cover a lot. So this is all on my website, and that is the website that I have all of my data and you can poke around and have a look at it.
