Is there some way tap into the data activity monitor generates?

Randall, before you start talking about enslaving users, have you had  
a look at Activity Monitor? It's part of OS X, and it reveals (to the  
user) various metrics about their CPU, memory and I/O use, as well as  
listing the currently running processes, and that sort of thing. It's  
a rather innocuous (and quite useful) utility.

AFAIK, it does not pass your credit card details to the CIA, or tell  
your Mum that you used a rude word in an email, or perform any  
enslaving or otherwise objectionable functions.

Best,

Mark
