The House That Tweets
So apparently Twitter may actually be more useful than I thought. Andy Stanford-Clarke, who owns a 16th century thatched cottage in the Isle of Wight has hooked his house up to twitter!
It tweets about anything and everything, from a mouse being caught in the kitchen, to how much electricity or water is being used. It also tweets when a window or door is opened or a light turns on. I can see all of the many, many useful applications for this already, security, energy conservation and pretty much anything else you can think of. Very interesting stuff. Here is a link to the BBC article.
