It’s funny how data is finding it’s way into everyday objects. There was jewelry a few months ago and coins last month. Now we’ve got this experiment with Christmas ornaments from Really Interesting Group (RIG). The snowman’s head is sized by the number of followers on Twitter; the (rain) bars represent miles traveled per month on Dopplr; the red shows listening habits on last.fm; and finally, the blue one shows apertures you’ve used over the year for photos uploaded to Flickr.
Useful? Sort of. Pretty? Yes. I certainly wouldn’t complain if I found those under (or I guess, on) my Christmas tree.
Here are a couple more shots:

ah, now if the snowman’s body = following and head = followers…
