A Simple Complex Photo: My Computer Eats Itself

Here’s an interesting photograph:

My Computer Eating Itself

I took the photo of my iBook using the iBook. By browsing to the webserver running on my phone. Which was pointing at the iBook. The phone, in turn, was getting its IP address, via Bluetooth, from the iBook. It all seems very symbiotic.

There is so much magic coming together to make this photo happen that it’s a miracle it all works: think “my blender talks my toaster into squeezing oranges for it.”

Thanks to loosely coupled pieces of the pie from Apache and Apple and Nokia and gnubox and Python it does, though. Neato.

That is cool. I can see that in the very near future we will all be getting next to nothing done ;-)
