I want to make Hu. A rudimentary version of Hu, sure, but Hu nonetheless. Every ten minutes or so, I want my computer to take a snapshot of what's going on -- what time it is, what software I have open, what websites I'm looking at, how many unread items are in my RSS reader, how many unread emails I have, what music I've been listening to, which files are open, how long/big those files are (to track my work's progress), what the weather's like, what I've eaten (via services like Daytum), etc. From there, I can look at trends, graph things, measure things, and spot patterns.
-What's more, I want this thing to have a plugin architecture ("*I can interface with anything! I'm infinitely extensible...*"). Want Hu to record how many items are in your trash can? Write a little bit of code that checks how many items are in the trash can and tell Hu you want that data recorded. Ditto for recording your weight. Or your remaining battery life. Or how many events are on your calendar for today ("do I work better when I've got long stretches of time to work in, or do I get work done in little chunks?").
+What's more, I want this thing to have a plugin architecture -- after all:
-This is all wishlist stuff, though. I'm hoping to get the basics done (what time it is, software open, websites I'm looking at, music I've been listening to, etc.) in a few weeks, then move on to making Hu extensible. If I get that done, the sky's the limit.

+# The Plan #

+This section is really only for me, but you can take a look at it to see what the roadmap for Hu looks like.

+- Get Hu to record the time.
+- Get Hu to record which apps I have open.
+- Get Hu to record what music I've been listening to.
+- Get Hu to record what websites I'm visiting.
+- Get Hu to record which files are open and how long/big they are.
+- Get Hu to record what the weather's like.
+- Get Hu to be extensible.
