Cool WhatPulse, XDA community interested?

Hi everyone, after having a discussion with MikeChannon (Forum Administrator) about this, he suggested making a thread to see how much interest it would gather and how the XDA community would feel.
(Edit by Mike: I don't know much about WhatPulse, so I'm neither recommending it nor rejecting it).

What is WhatPulse?

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WhatPulse

Quote:
WhatPulse is a key counting program which monitors the number of keystrokes, mouseclicks, computer uptime, and bandwidth usage, that a user makes over a period of time. Unlike keyloggers, the authors claim WhatPulse does not record the order of the keys that are pressed, but instead measures the number of times that keys are pressed.[2]
WhatPulse is a keylogger!?!!? (always a worry for people)

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=is+WhatPulse+a+keylogger

Personally I've used it since 2006: http://whatpulse.org/TagEHeuer - not that I've used it much as I haven't really bothered with it.

I was thinking it would be a fun community group effort for everyone. They have thousands of teams on WhatPulse, it's just all in all a big load of fun! We'd make a team and just compete against other teams, it's also exposure for XDA.

You can see all the statistics here: http://whatpulse.org/stats/overall/numbers/

Remember it's just an idea, just wanted to hear how my fellow XDA members would feel, and if anyone would actually take part in this fun project, challenge.

As always keep supporting the community with your great custom ROMS, mods, kernels, themes, apps, posts, etc.

** I have registered the team XDADevelopers just so no one trolls and takes it. Of course if people are interested, the powers that be will get the team.

I actively donate to people who are helpful towards others and myself. Be it a small amount or a large amount. I will try my best to thank you with a donation.

Anyone give me any feedback on why they wouldn't want to take part? Doesn't seem like something people would be interested in, or maybe I'm wrong?

I think this is pretty interesting. Maybe I'll take a more in-depth look at it on the weekend.

Thank you. Not sure how many others are interested. Looks like it won't kick off

Hey,

I can certainly see the value of this, however, the majority of my keystrokes are done from my work computer.

Problem with that is, I'd have my neck on the chopping board if I circumvented the permissions and installed something such as this.

I would find.it.interesting to see how much I am communicating digitally though, as I do wonder if it has already passed the amount of face to face communication.

Thank you for looking at it. If we can get more people interested, then maybe we can do something. If you'd both vote on the poll that would be helpful. If you let more people know about this, that we would fantastic also.
