If you’ve never seen Johnny Lee’s videos explaining how he uses cheap Wii remotes to do amazing things, check out the TED video, or his home page.
Now after watching that video, I snuck into the ActiveState game room, and poked around with the wiimotes & projector there. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the wiimote project.
Now someone needs to hook that project up with some of the open source screen-sharing software, and all kinds of cool things could happen.
Speaking of which — any recommendations for inexpensive projectors (for presentations, not home theater stuff)?
I use MarsEdit to author my blog posts, then publish to WordPress 2.2, and see some of my posts aggregated by some Planet sites.
Every now and then I need to make a minor change, and that seems to result in resyndication so that readers of the planet feed get duplicates.
Is there a trick in either MarsEdit or WordPress to identifying minor updates?
Lazyweb: Is there a free alternative to Webex for doing over-the-air live demos?
Using VNC to give complete access to a desktop doesn’t qualify because of the security issues. Bonus points for cross-platform answers.
AppleScript, Shrook & Pukka experts — is it possible to build a custom keyboard command that lets me invoke Pukka from Shrook? (These names, I know!).
I haven’t touched AppleScript seriously since the late 80s I fear, but there’s got to be a way to hijack Pukka’s Mark as Flagged command, no?
I’d like to make a quicksilver script to connect Pukka and Firefox. If anyone’s done it already, send it my way!
Alternatively, if I could just add a keyboard shortcut to the bookmarklet…
UPDATE: Justin Miller pointed me out-of-band to this page, which includes an applescript which can be configured with quicksilver to be hot-keyed. Unfortunately, that loses the title for the page, so while it is more keyboard-driven than the bookmarklet, the requirement to type in a title makes it not as convenient. Automation is hard!
