Interfacing with users

An interesting article over at Infoworld by Jon Udell about other ways of "displaying" and accessing information sources.

I think the idea of the bird's chirping is really neat. It would be nice to be able to get knowledge about systems rather than looking at logs, watching top, waiting for SNMP traps, etc. As I am someone who has music going all day, I wonder if this could translate some of this in to the music I listen to. Basically have nice quiet calm songs on when things are working well and then have it switch to some other (heavy metal, angry music, etc) as the system gets bad. Could be an interesting little project to build. I could think of having different categories for different types of music and then set limits on when you want the music to change. Maybe this could be my new project, as I have been looking for one for a while.
