With too much bookmark dept I've started using Tabs Outliner to manage my links in active/inactive tabs and windows.

Latest hack is toggling my 4th +Philips Hue bulb in the hallway using a +Belkin WeMo motion sensor. It's a quick hack that polls the sensors status over http after finding it via UPNP. The commands to control the light are hardcoded for now. https://github.com/robwalch/wemo

Since I'm much better at +JavaScript than +Python, I'm prototyping a +node.js server with a web front end to manage UPNP devices and link up services. For this task specifically, I want to establish a socket connection with the sensor to optimize performance and avoid polling if possible. I'll need to do a little packet sniffing to figure out how the WeMo iPhone app works, unless +Belkin champs up and documents how their devices can be accessed. If +IFTTT can do it, so can I!

Wrote up some comments on enhancements to +XBMC +Philips Hue ambilight plugin. Looking for Hue users to chime in. Do you use XBMC? Maybe an +HTML5 video plugin for +Google Chrome would be cool?
