Measure Everything: my numbers for 2011

Good :)

  • 129 lectures in video of 160+ lecture hours given at Univ. Pisa [here]
  • 12 nice scientific papers in journals, 2/3 of which really great [here]
  • 12 books read (promise kept): 10 great books, 2 terrible ones. 10 non fiction, 2 fiction.
  • 1000+ photos with my new (entry level) digital reflex camera (started shooting pics again)

Not bad  :|

  • 2141 (total) citations as from Google scholar (but decreased rate wrt 2010). [here]
  • 1342 (total) citations as from ISI WoS (but almost zero increase wrt 2010) [here]
  • Marginally fit again: 65 kg on bench press, 60 Kg squat, following this recipe in only 20 workouts between july and september (1-2 per week).
  • Marginally fit again: 1 year of (cheating) paleo diet, 3 Kg weight loss, 30W-32L again!
  • Quantavis closes its fifth year and enters year 6.
  • 4 outreach talks

Bad :(

  • >10 project proposals submitted in 2011, too small success rate.
  • only ~ 200 Km total run in the whole year (20 with these shoes, to remember our ancestors)
  • Zero articles sent to newspapers
  • Zero Quantavis products on sale
  • Only 1 blog post
  • Too few family hours and weekends
  • (Much) less than the promised 1 movie per month for Cristiana (some good surprises, some less)
  • Zero hours playing the piano
