When I first saw this, I immediately saw ties to the World Wide Gamma. I love the idea of taking loads of data, mashing it up, and seeing what happens. Last Friday I mentioned this to Giordano and he immediately saw the ties to Nathan's prosopagnosia post. I love our 9:30 AM Friday breakfast meetup!Here is a short video describing the process:
- People were drawn from Pyrmont, Millers Point, Rosebery, Redfern, Waterloo, Newtown, East Sydney, Glebe, The Rocks, Ultimo, Haymarket, CBD and Alexandria.
- The oldest was 93 and the youngest two weeks.
- Some 54 per cent of participants described their ancestry as Anglo Saxon Celtic, 3 per cent as Indigenous Australians, 4 per cent as having South American ancestry and 11 per cent Chinese ancestry.
- Participants reflected the diverse or homogenous ethnic origins and age structure of the local population.
Although they do not have all of the photos, there is a gallery of ~160 of the participants here.
