Now this is cool. Valve implemented some tech in Half-Life 2: Episode One that monitors various stats. There’s nothing particularly new in this idea, usage stats for software have been around for ages and are incredibly useful. It’s great to be able to see what options are used and what paths users take through software. It can help remove ways of working that don’t work and make sure more popular ones are used. The end result is hopefully better, more usable software.
