    My new experiment.

    http://www.ignoro.co.uk
    I can't give too many details here without giving it away. Anyway, let me know what you think. It's a mess of JavaScript and PHP and MySQL. I think I might move some of it over to flash due to the amount of pressure it is putting on the browser in its current incarnation.

    very interesting.

    glad i could contribute :}

    you should try changing it up and moving the text around or have it be a popup etc to see if it changes where the person clicks. right now it seems everyone clicks on the text

    Awesome. I clicked sort of the the left and up a tad.

    Nice. I thought it was a picture of a galaxy or something, until I saw the text at the top.

    Interesting how it seems to be more concentrated along the lines to the corners, isn't it? Especially the top corners, for some reason...

    I'm actually more interested in the lines out to the corners. That's weird.

    edit: Do you have any historical data on this? Like what had happened after certain times?

    The words draw you into the center. You should do a pop-up that say click anywhere on the screen and see if you still get the clustering in the center

    I could replay every click in order from the first click to the current one but I didn't record the exact times for each one.

    That's basically what I was looking for. It'd suck to lose the information after too many people click on it. You need to make a video
