Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very engaging historical look at data collection We generate data everyday. This video is an interesting look at the history of notable data collection, including the creation of packet switching. It's not too in depth, but it doesn't need to be. Hannah Fry is engaging and the 1 hour covers a lot of ground that could lead you down different avenues. I personally am looking more into the Old Bailey records because I am interested in the law and criminal justice, but someone else may find the wearable tracking project more interesting and worth looking more into. It's worth the 1 hour.
