At my previous gig i had some oversight of marketing. And the marketing folks often complained that there was an unfair level of technical depth needed. I would usually tell them "suck it up princess, get back to that vi + shell" or "the beatings will continue until morale improves".
Well, one of those folks seems to have gone on to some pretty slick hackery. Check out his twitch stream. It seems to involve some rasperry pi, some sensors, and some real-time botanical growing.
Nice work. And the internet (which once only had coffee pots to watch, and then of course, briefly, jenni) now has another cam to watch. And now we can know the live humidity of your hydroponic farm, real-time. What a time to be alive!
