This is a script I created as a proof-of-concept to illustrate how simple technologies- ones that are available now, to anyone with a browser- can be used by people to control the space they inhabit. All you need is time to think creatively about what the technology around is capable of doing beyond what it’s doing now. The script allows you to use Google Calendar as a frontend for cron-like scheduling on your Unix/Linux system. If that system is acting as a home server, you’ve suddenly gained an incredibly powerful administration tool that anyone can use to control and automate their environment. On this page, I talk about the technical aspects of the project, but in this post I talk more about the cool implications when looking at the bigger picture of design and interactive architecture.
