He has enormous piles of data about himself and his activities, 
including every email he's ever sent or received, all the keystrokes 
he's made, every calendar event, detailed logs of telephone call start 
time and duration, and fascinating data about his editing of his book A 
New Kind of Science.  He's also apparently scanned and OCR'ed almost all 
the paper documents he's ever received.

What's interesting to me is that he seems to never have looked at any of 
this data until now!  It's a fascinating look into his life.  I'd love 
to have someone do that email analysis on my archive, but I just know 
that it's not as easy as he makes it sound - my archive is very 
heterogeneous, since I change software about every five years...
