How can you hear on the inter­net?
When I launch a web­site or send out a link to a few peo­ple I start to obses­sively check if any­one has vis­ited the site. It becomes an addic­tion. Thanks to online ser­vices such as Google Ana­lyt­ics and Stat­counter I can dis­cover all kinds of infor­ma­tion about my vis­i­tors. How can we use this infor­ma­tion bet­ter in the future and inte­grate our online pop­u­lar­ity with our social sta­tus in the real world?

Ear­Burn­ers are small devices that you wear on your ears. They heat up and glow when some­one vis­its your blog, web­site or social net­work pro­files. The level of warmth and light emit­ted is pro­por­tion­ate to the amount of inter­est in your dig­i­tal self. At a per­sonal level they allow you to sense your con­nec­tion to your online friends and fol­low­ers. In pub­lic they can also dis­play your online pop­u­lar­ity to the real world.
