This is basically a direct follow-up to my Snarkmarket post from the middle of 2009 titled The Post-Orwellian Future of Connected Books and Everything Else: I made a connected book! Well, sort of. In the most minimal way imaginable.
But I got the data, I plotted it, and… hmm. This instrumented reading thing might not be all its cracked up to be.
In all seriousness, it was an important step for me—from long-trumpeted theory to practical implementation. I’m still excited about the idea… but it’s going to take a more sophisticated (or more creative) implementation to actually deliver on, like, the premise.
But, if nothing else: the graphs are pretty!
