Track Mouse Activity On Your Computer

Track Mouse Activity On Your Computer
Anatoly Zenkov provides this nifty tool (Mac and PC) to track your mouse pointer. Really simple. Just start it, let it run, minimize the window, and carry on as usual. In the end, you get this image that looks something like a Pollock. Circles show areas where the pointer didn't move while the tracks show movement. The above is my own activity during the past couple of hours. What do your tracks look like? [via feltron] Update: Anatoly has setup an actual site for the app instead of it sitting in the dropbox boonies of boontown.

I got the idea for this extension from Lee Brimelow’s excellent tutorial on the Motion Preset panel. The Product Space and the Wealth of Nations The concept of proximity formalizes the intuitive idea that the ability of a country to produce a product depends on its ability to produce other ones. For example, a country with the ability to export apples will probably have most of the conditions suitable to export pears. Unfortunately this intuitive definition of proximity is, very cumbersome to measure. It requires quantifying the overlap between the set of markets related to each product.

Looking at emerging trends and research, one can predict and draw conclusions about how the technological sphere is developing, and which technologies should become mainstream in the coming years. Envisioning technology is meant to facilitate these observations by taking a step back and seeing the wider context. By speculating about what lies beyond the horizon we can make better decisions of what to create today. Visualising Subversion with Gource Over the weekend I stumbled across a video link, released (I assume) by Flickr. The video is a visualisation of the last 7 years of commits into the Flickr Subversion repository. Wow, there’s a lot of work been done to Flickr over the past 7 years! What’s even more interesting is you can easily create the same type of visualisation with your own project using an open-source project called Gource. Gource is a version control visualisation tool developed by Andrew Caudwell. At the moment it supports Git, Mercurial and Bazaar but it is also possible to use it with Subversion (SVN) with a few extra steps.
