A day in my life as the wife of a data scientist...

Andrew—of course—went all in on keeping statistics as we made our way across the country and back. He started out keeping copious notes about start and stop times...before he realized that our cell phones track all that information anyway and he could simply harvest that data and analyze it later. 

And that's exactly what he did, which is equal parts fascinating and terrifying. 

Our phones have information about where we are right down to the millisecond of every day, right down to the latitude and longitude of every footstep. It's...wild...and fascinating.

Anyway, if you want to read about all the statistics of our trip (including about the moment I cut the kids off from (sugary) beverages because we were stopping for potty breaks every half hour) you can read Andrew's blog post here.

That link will skip you right past all the coding tutorials he included at the top (so you don't have to wade through those).
