This sixty-something guy was particularly impressed with the insight into the minds of those who tend to be a bit younger than I. It has certainly proved to be a point of contact for provocative discussions with my children who are of the generation that provides most of the substance of the "we" who "feel fine". In that sense it is revelatory and hopeful that "the kids are alright". You see this both through the unique individuals and the information that is extrapolated from so many of us. Finally, it may well draw you into the website of the same name which minute to minute provides data for what may well be a sequel in the making of this "Almanac of Human Emotion".
