C M Taylor Keylogging Data: 07 Jan 2015 – 30 Jan 2015



This dataset is comprised of keylogging data from the author C M Taylor captured October 2014 – 30 January 2015; Keystroke files: 07/01/2015 – 30/01/2015.The dataset is comprised of screenshots and keystroke logs. The screenshots are saved individually as JPGs and BMPs as well as an AVI file, so the individual captures play as a film. Keystrokes are saved either as .rtf files or .txt. This data was created using keylogging software Spectre Pro (SpectreSoft) installed on a dedicated IBM Thinkpad laptop and then exported as TXT, RTF, JPEG, BMP and AVI files. They can be used for image and text analysis, teaching, art projects, or anything else of inspiration.
