I went to this interesting presentation this afternoon at the NSF PI conference on webmetrics. In a hopefully soon to be funded project, we've proposed to do some webmetrics - i.e., determining where people are going, what they're doing, how long they stay in various activities, etc. when online. There are lots more possibilities for 'monitoring' usage than I anticipated. I look forward to receiving some additional material from the presenter and learning more about this topic.

I think one of the more interesting things is being able to compare what they report doing vs. what they actually do.

Who is watching where you go online, what you do, how long you stay in various places, etc.? And, what do you think about these activities?
