    Streaming Analytics: A Window Into Collective Mental Wellness

    What could the programs that we choose to watch, queue, and re-watch tell us about our emotional/mental state – and might they be able to reveal more than we are able to communicate/admit ourselves?

    The al a carte, self-serving nature of today’s digital streaming services allows users to set up their own digital buffet. A little bit of this, a little bit more of that, less of this.

I remember watching it for the first time and thinking, somewhere around the 20th minute, “wait, I haven’t heard anyone talk yet.” The best part was, that I wasn’t disappointed – it brought about a feeling of relief, relaxation.
