This application graphs Steve‘s fingers as he types his stories (not in real-time, unfortunately, but maybe in a future release). It gets a live feed from his web site, captures the last 4 stories, converts the non-HTML characters to Unicode numeric values, and plots them on a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) canvas. This is my first venture into the world of SVG, and I couldn’t have achieved this level of graphical manipulation without the help of the SVG Integration jQuery plugin.
