he paper describes an ambient intelligence proposal, an application which runs on mobile phones, presenting individual users with an overview of their time usage patterns. It tracks users' movements in space using GPS technology and displays this information, aiming to highlight changes to their normal routine. The output, a data visualization interface, displayed on the phone is designed to produce a highly personal topology of time usage. Rooted in a deep interest in unveiling the hidden patterns of everyday life, this work aims to research Ubicomp in a personal context. By placing the software literally in the user's pocket (mobile phone), it is implied the best way for one to reflect upon the issue is through experience.
