Wanted: Brave souls for an experiment

I am in need of some brave souls who are willing to be part of a small experiment. I suspect most readers of this blog will meet the simple criteria I have for participants which is why I posted here.

The purpose of this experiment is to get an idea of what your work on the computer is like, in terms of context switches and away time. This will be represented in a simple graphical way which you may find useful even after the experiment. You can see an example at the bottom of this post.

All I would require from you is to let the application run in the background and send me a screenshot of the state of the application when you are done your work day. You can do this as often as you like but at least once at the end of your day is requested.

If you are interested, please email me and include:

  • Your primary job function (web developer, technical documentation, etc)
  • Your operating system
  • Whether you currently use JIRA or another project management tool

I look forward to hearing from you!
