pulley far up the hill The weight of the one car going down pulls the other up the two vessels travel in counterbalance Ive learned that thats what being a parent is like If the years bring me low, they raise my daughter, and, please, so be it I surrender gladly to the passage, of course, especially as each new moment gone by is another Ive lived with her, but that doesnt mean I dont miss the days when my hair was actually all brown and my skin free of weird spots My girl is two and I can tell you that nothing makes the arc of time clear than the creases in the back of your hand as it teaches plump little fingers to count one, two, tee.But some guy having a baby and getting wrinkles is not news You can start with whatever the Oil of Olay marketing department is running up the pole this weekas Im writing its the idea of color correcting your face with a creamy beige paste that is either mud from the foothills of Alsace or the very essence of bullshitand work your way back to myths of Heras jealous rage People have been obsessed with getting older, and with getting uglier because of it, for as long as thereve been people and obsession and ugliness Death and taxes are our two eternals, right And depending on the next government shutdown, the latter is looking less and less reliable So there you go.When I was a teenagerand it shocks me to realize I was closer then to my daughters age than to my current thirty eightI was really into punk rock, especially pop punk The bands were basically snottier and less proficient versions of Green Day When I go back and listen to them now, the whole phenomenon seems supernatural to me grown men brought together in trios and quartets by some unseen force to whine about girlfriends and what other people are eating But at the time I thought these bands were the shit And because they were too cool to have posters, I had to settle for arranging their album covers and flyers on my bedroom wall My parents have long since movedtwice, in fact Im pretty sure my old bedroom is now someone elses attic, and I have no idea where any of the paraphernalia I collected is Or really what most of it even looked like I can just remember it and smile, and wince.Today an eighteen year old tacks a picture on his wall, and that wall will never come down Not only will his thirty eight year old self be able to go back, pick through the detritus, and ask, What was I thinking , so can the rest of us, and so can researchers Moreover, they can do it for all people, not just one guy And, still, they can connect that eighteenth year to what came before and whats still to come, because the wall, covered in totems, follows him from that bedroom in his parents house to his dorm room to his first apartment to his girlfriends place to his honeymoon, and, yes, to his daughters nursery Where he will proceed to paper it over in a billion updates of her eating mush.A new parent is perhaps most sensitive to the milestones of getting older Its almost all you talk about with other people, and you get actual metrics at the doctors every few months But the milestones keep coming long after babycenter.com and the pediatrician quit with the reminders Its just that we stop keeping track Computers, however, have nothing better to do keeping track is their only job They dont lose the scrapbook, or travel, or get drunk, or grow senile, or even blink They just sit there and remember The myriad phases of our lives, once gone but to memory and the occasional shoebox, are becoming permanent, and as daunting as that may be to everyone with a drunk selfie on Instagram, the opportunity for understanding, if handled carefully, is self evident.What Ive just described, the wall and the long accumulation of a life, is what sociologists call longitudinal datadata from following the same people, over timeand I was speculating about the research of the future We dont have these capabilities quite yet because the Internet, as a pervasive human record, is still too young As hard as it is to believe, even Facebook, touchstone and warhorse that it is, has only been big for about six years Its not even in middle school Information this deep is still something were building toward, literally, one day at a time In ten or twenty years, well be able to answer questions likewell, for one, how much does it mess up a person to have every moment of her life, since infancy, posted for everyone else to see But well also know so much about how friends grow apart or how new ideas percolate through the mainstream I can see the long term potential in the rows and columns of my databases, and we can all see it in, for example, the promise of Facebooks Timeline for the passage of time, data creates a new kind of fullness, if not exactly a new science.Even now, in certain situations, we can find an excellent proxy, a sort of flash forward to the possibilities We can take groups of people at different points in their lives, compare them, and get a rough draft of lifes arc This approach wont work with music tastes, for example, because music itself also evolves through time, so the analysis has no control But there are fixed universals that can support it, and, in the data I have, the nexus of beauty, sex, and age is one of them Here the possibility already exists to mark milestones, as well as lay bare vanities and vulnerabilities that were perhaps till now just shades of truth So doing, we will approach a topic that has consumed authors, painters, philosophers, and poets since those vocations existed, perhaps with less art though there is an art to it , but with a new and glinting precision As usual, the good stuff lies in the distance between thought and action, and Ill show you how we find it.Ill start with the opinions of womenall the trends below are true across my sexual data sets, but for specificitys sake, Ill use numbers from OkCupid This table lists, for a woman, the age of men she finds most attractive If Ive arranged it unusually, youll see in a second why.Reading from the top, we see that twenty and twenty one year old women prefer twenty three year old guys twenty two year old women like men who are twenty four, and so on down through the years to women at fifty, who we see rate forty six year olds the highest This isnt survey data, this is data built from tens of millions of preferences expressed in the act of finding a date, and even from just following along the first few entries, the gist of the table is clear a woman wants a guy to be roughly as old as she is Pick an age in black under forty, and the number in red is always very close The broad trend comes through better when I let lateral space reflect the progression of the values in red That dotted diagonal is the age parity line, where the male and female years would be equal Its not a canonical math thing, just something I overlaid as a guide for your eye Often there is an intrinsic geometry to a situationit was the first science for a reasonand well take advantage wherever possible This particular line brings out two transitions, which coincide with big birthdays The first pivot point is at thirty, where the trend of the red numbersthe ages of the mencrosses below the line, never to cross back Thats the datas way of saying that until thirty, a woman prefers slightly older guys afterward, she likes them slightly younger Then at forty, the progression breaks free of the diagonal, going practically straight down for nine years That is to say, a womans tastes appear to hit a wall Or a mans looks fall off a cliff, however you want to think about it If we want to pick the point where a mans sexual appeal has reached its limit, its there forty.The two perspectives of the woman doing the rating and of the man being rated are two halves of a whole As a woman gets older, her standards evolve, and from the mans side, the rough 1 1 movement of the red numbers versus the black implies that as he matures, the expectations of his female peers mature as wellpractically year for year He gets older, and their viewpoint accommodates him The wrinkles, the nose hair, the renewed commitment to cargo shortsthese are all somehow satisfactory, or at least offset by other virtues Compare this to the free fall of scores going the other way, from men to women.This graphand its practically not even a graph, just a table with a couple columnsmakes a statement as stark as its own negative space A womans at her best when shes in her very early twenties Period And really my plot doesnt show that strongly enough The four highest rated female ages are twenty, twenty one, twenty two, and twenty three for every group of guys but one You can see the general pattern below, where Ive overlaid shading for the top two quartiles that is, top half of ratings Ive also added some female ages as numbers in black on the bottom horizontal to help you navigate Again, the geometry speaks the male pattern runs much deeper than just a preference for twenty year olds And after he hits thirty, the latter half of our age range that is, women over thirty five might as well not exist Younger is better, and youngest is best of all, and if over the hill means the beginning of a persons decline, a straight woman is over the hill as soon as shes old enough to drink.Of course, another way to put this focus on youth is that males expectations never grow up A fifty year old mans idea of whats hot is roughly the same as a college kids, at least with age as the variable under considerationif anything, men in their twenties are willing to date older women That pocket of middling ratings in the upper right of the plot, thats your cougar bait, basically Hikers just out enjoying a nice day, then bam.In a mathematical sense, a mans age and his sexual aims are independent variables the former changes while the latter never does I call this Woodersons law, in honor of its most famous proponent, Matthew McConaugheys character from Dazed and Confused.Unlike Wooderson himself, what men claim they want is quite different from the private voting data weve just seen The ratings above were submitted without any specific prompt beyond Judge this person But when you ask men outright to select the ages of women theyre looking for, you get much different results The gray space below is what men tell us they want when asked Since I dont think that anyone is intentionally misleading us when they give OkCupid their preferencestheres little incentive to do that, since all you get then is a site that gives you what you know you dont wantI see this as a statement of what men imagine theyre supposed to desire, versus what they actually do The gap between the two ideas just grows over the years, although the tension seems to resolve in a kind of pathetic compromise when its time to stop voting and act, as youll see.The next plot the final one of this type well look at identifies the age with the greatest density of contact attempts These most messaged ages are described by the darkest gray squares drifting along the left hand edge of the larger swath Those three dark verticals in the graphs lower half show the jumps in a mans self concept as he approaches middle age You can almost see the gears turning At forty four, hes comfortable approaching a woman as young as thirty five Then, one year laterhe thinks better of it While a nine year age difference is fine, ten years is apparently too much.Its this kind of calculated no mans landthe balance between what you want, what you say, and what you dothat real romance has to occupy no matter how people might vote in private or what they prefer in the abstract, there arent many fifty year old men successfully pursuing twenty year old women For one thing, social conventions work against it For another, dating requires reciprocity What one person wants is only half of the equation.An NPR Best Book of 2014A Globe Mail Best Book of 2014A Brain Pickings Best Science Book of 2014A Bloomberg Best Book of 2014One of Hudson Booksellers 5 Best Business Books of 2014Goodreads Semifinalist for Best Nonfiction Book of the YearFinalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize Most data hyping books are vapor and slogans This one has the real stuff actual data and actual analysis taking place on the page Thats something to be praised, loudly and at length Praiseworthy, too, is Rudders writing, which is consistently zingy and mercifully free of Silicon Valley business gabble Jordan Ellenberg, Washington Post As a researcher, Mr Rudder clearly possesses the statistical acumen to answer the questions he has posed so well As a writer, he keeps the book moving while fully exploring each topic, revealing his graphs and charts with both explanatory and narrative skill Though he forgoes statistical particulars like p values and confidence intervals, he gives an approachable, persuasive account of his data sources and results He offers explanations of what the data can and cannot tell us, why it is sufficient or insufficient to answer some question we may have and, if the latter is the case, what sufficient data would look like He shows you, in short, how to think about data Wall Street Journal Rudder is the co founder of the dating siteOKCupidand the data scientist behind its now legendarytrend analyses, but he is also as it becomes immediately clear from his elegant writing and wildly cross disciplinary references a lover of literature, philosophy, anthropology, and all the other humanities thatmake us humanand that, importantly in this case, enhance and ennoble the hard data with dimensional insight into the richness of the human experiencean extraordinarily unusual and dimensional lens on what Carl Sagan memorably called the aggregate of our joy and suffering Maria Popova, Brain Pickings Fascinating, funny, and occasionally howl inducing Rudder is a quant with soul, and were lucky to have him Elle There s another side of Big Data you haven t seennot the one that promised to use our digital world to our advantage to optimize, monetize, or systematize every last part our lives It s the big data that rears its ugly head and tells us what we don twant to know And that, as Christian Rudder demonstrates in his new book, Dataclysm, is perhaps an equally worthwhile pursuit Before we heighten the human experience, we should understand it first TIME At a time when consumers are increasingly wary of online tracking, Rudder makes a powerful argument in Dataclysm that the ability to tell so much about us from the trails we leave is as potentially useful as it is pernicious, and as educational as it may be unsettling By explaining some of the insights he has gleaned from OkCupid and other social networks, he demystifies data mining and sheds light on what, for better or for worse, it is now capable of Financial Times Dataclysm is a well written and funny look at what the numbers reveal about human behavior in the age of social media Its both profound and a bit disturbing, because, sad to say, were generally not the kind of people we like to think or say we are Salon For all its data and its seemingly dating specific focus, Dataclysmtells the story set forth by the book s subtitle, in an entertaining and accessible way Informative, eye opening, and gasp fun to read Even if youre not a giantstat head Grantland Rudder doesnt wring or clap his hands over the big data phenomenon see N.S.A., Google ads, that sneaky Fitbit so much as plunge them into big data and attempt to pull strange creatures from the murky depths The New Yorker Ahopeful and exciting journey into the heart of data collection Rudder s book delivers both insider access and a savvy critique of the very machinery he is employed by Since he s been in the data mines and has risen above them, Rudder becomes a singular and trustworthy guide The Globe and Mail Compulsively readable including for those with no particular affinity for numbers in and of themselves and surprisingly personal Starting with aggregates, Rudder posits, we can zoom in on the details of how we live, love, fight, work, play, and age from numbers, we can derive narrative There are few characters in the book, and few anecdotes but the human story resounds throughout Refinery29 Rudders lively, clear prosemakes heady concepts understandable and transforms the books many charts into revealing truthsRudder teaches us a bit about how wonderfully peculiar humans are, and how we go about hiding it Flavorwire Dataclysmis all about what we can learn about human minds and hearts by analyzing the massive ongoing experiment that is the internet Forbes The book reads as if it s written well by a curious child whose parents beg him or her to stop asking what if questions Rudder examines the data of the website he helped create with unwavering curiosity Every turn presents new questions to be answered, and he happily heads down the rabbit hole to resolve them U.S News A wonderful march through infographics created using data derived from the weba fun, visual bookand a necessary one at that The Independent UK , 2014 s Best Books on the Internet and Technology This is the best book that I ve read on data in years, perhaps ever If you want to understand how data is affecting the present and what it portends for the future, buy it now Huffington Post Rudder draws from big data sets Google searches, Twitter updates, illicitly obtained Facebook data passed shiftily between researchers like bags of weed to draw out subtle patterns in politics, sexuality, identity and behaviour that are only revealed with distance and aggregation Dataclysmwill entertain those who want to know how machines see us It also serves as a call to action, showing us how server farms running everything from home shopping to homeland security turn us into easily digested data products Rudder s message is clear in this particular sausage factory, we are the pigs New Scientist Dataclysm offers both the satisfaction of confirming stereotypes and the fun of defying themSuch candor is disarming, as is Mr Rudders puckish sense of humor Pittsburgh Post Gazette Studying human behavior is a little like exploring a jungle it s messy, hard, and easy to lose your way But Christian Rudder is a consummate guide, revealing essential truths about who we are Big Data has never been so fun Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational Dataclysm is a book full of juicy secretssecrets about who we love, what we crave, why we like, and how we change each others minds and lives, often without even knowing it Christian Rudder makes this mathematical narrative of our culture fun to read and even fun to discuss You will find yourself sharing these intriguing data driven revelations with everyone you know Jane McGonigal, author of Reality Is Broken In the first few pages of Dataclysm, Christian Rudder uses massive amounts of actual behavioral data to prove what I always believed in my heart Belle and Sebastian is the whitest band ever It only gets better from there Aziz Ansari Its unheard of for a book about Big Data to read like a guilty pleasure, but Dataclysm does Its a fascinating, almost voyeuristic look at who we really are and what we really want Steven Strogatz, Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics, Cornell University, author of The Joy of x Smart, revealing, and sometimes sobering, Dataclysm affirms what we probably suspected in our darker moments When it comes to romance, what we say we want isn t what will actually make us happy Christian Rudder has tapped the tremendous wealth of data that the Internet offers to tease out thoughts on topics like beauty and race that most of us wouldnt cop to publicly It s a riveting read, and Rudder is an affable and
