How Many Miles do You Scroll Online?

Have you ever wondered how many miles your fingers scroll when you browse the internet? Digital Detox did so s/he created a Google Chrome extension to track their personal scrolling distance on all the websites they visit. The data is then sent in real-time to a Leaflet map.

Marco Land is an interactive map which shows the path of the Camino Franc├ęs, the most popular pilgrimage route of the Way of St. James. This ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain is 955.22 kilometers long. So far Digital Detox has scrolled less than 4 kilometers or about 0.35% of the route.

I think it might be quicker to actually walk the pilgrimage for real.
