My friend Joshua Ramo wrote an article in Newsweek that manages to talk in poetic terms about the most non poetic of experiences, jet lag. In this article he introduces a concept of a person´s average speed.
we came up with the idea of calculating our average speeds. We took the number of miles we had flown in the year, divided it by the number of hours in a year and produced an average annual velocity.
Reading this I thought that a related measure could be a personal globalization index. The formula would be the same but only intercontinental flights would count.
