Tracking reader behavior

Hiptype is an interesting new publishing service that promises to give authors an amazing level of insight into how readers use a book. The service is in private beta so it's unclear exactly how it works, but the site promises that it's compatible with existing e-reading software. Sadly, there does seem to be an emphasis on advertising and fictional works, so it's also not clear how well it would apply to technical manuals. But on the surface, it's certainly fun to think about being able to measure readership at this level of detail.
