So this week I also tried out tracking my mouse x,y coordinates. I used two sketches MousetrackDraw (display x,y values from csv files) and TrackMouseInBackground (get x,y values). Instead of just tracking it over a day I used I used it on different sites- facebook and twitter. For the same set amount of time I used facebook and twitter and the results are interesting. You can kind of get a feel for the architecture of the sites without even knowing what they are.
Facebook– the pattern has an overt back and forth pattern between the different sides of the page.
Twitter– you can see how the mouse stays relatively in a linear path on the right hand side of the page.
