Can your washing machine twitter?

Posted in

Way back in the history of networking (1970's), one of the first applications was for students to remotely probe the availability and later the coldness of Coke machines at the Standford.  Read about history at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~coke/

Now almost 25 years later, a programmer in San Jose has modified his 25 year old washing machine to send a Twitter message when his washing is done. You can follow his machine at http://twitter.com/PiMPY3WASH.  If you search around you can find other crazy twitter feeds - e.g. cat flaps, toilets systems, etc
