What's Your Metadata Story?

There's a very timely New York Times Bits article, 'Using E-mail Data to Connect the Dots of Your Life'
 about the metadata (data about the data) that defines your e-mail and how it is different than the actual content.  With all the recent talk of NSA and Prism, it's interesting to see your data visualized and the story that it tells.

The Immersion team at MIT Labs is doing some interesting work where you can see first hand the metadata view of your gmail account. It's secure and also allows you to delete once your complete and provides a much more detailed and interactive view than the summary I've provided.  I encourage you to try it and see first hand your e-mail metadata story and share what you think.

Thank You: @NYTimesBits and MIT @MediaLab
