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.
