ehehe, i agree. some crazier  experiment in visualisation can be phun.
that's  what  Hellekin  proposed   for  the  hacker  space  room  last
year. http://lab.dyne.org/HackerSpaceInterPhone

i join for what i can which  is not a lot of time currently. we wanted
to  use  something  like  hasciicam  and ihu  together,  very  minimal
solution indeed, but this way a hub of nodes can be scripted into some
shell scripts... curl a list via http and gtkdialog or so :)

the objective is to render a  solution that is cool and still works on
any  leftover box  in  the hackerspace,  since  that will  have to  be
dedicated to the task, noone  really wants to lose the number-cruncher
to it.

this year in Paris  for the HSF2009 we're going to hack  a bit more on
it, while we can already do some conferencing over ssh tunnels..

anyone interested in hacking, git repo is already up ;)
