I'd love to have a "Visitors to this blog in the last 24 hours" counter on my blog... I think that would really give me, and visitors, a good indication of how busy things are (or arent).

Do-able?

Yeap - I would use it if it was available...

I looked at the third party one some of Geekzone users use - but did not like the privacy stuff that went with it.

I suggest statcounter - their privacy statement is clean, and they don't drop cookies from third parties (not that I am worried about cookies, this is the least of the problems on the Internet these days).

For something more "social" I use mybloglog. I don't think they have a counter though.

The problem with counters is the amount of resources - CPU, database required to track these things, cleanup old records, keep it up to date. I suspect I would have to increase the CPU quite a bit to keep up with this...

What is the easiest way to insert the few lines of HTML these people give you in  to your page so (say) it shows up on the right hand pane.

Also, I amassuming MyBlogLog would only diplsay other  MyBlogLog users - right? For example, it wont know a user who is registered with Geekzone but not registered with MyBlogLog.

MAke sure you insert the code with no line breaks between lines because these will be replaced with the BR tag. The best thing is to copy the code to notepad, turn word wrap off and make sure everything is in a single line. Then copy to an item in a "Free" list on your blog sidebar.
