I am often susceptible to crazy ideas. But for some reason, I think this actually might be sane....
What would happen if someone wrote a script that mirrored a filesystem tree in a Tinderbox file (with the actual file in the "file" attribute)? What if then, someone wrote a script that reads an exported file, diffs it, and runs OS/X shell programs if you move the file or delete the note within Tindebox?
How cool would it be to be able to link and annotate any data on your filesystem, to say nothing about grouping them with agents, giving them attributes, etc.?
Am I insane, or is this a good idea? I know it can be done with Tinderbox and Python, but should it be done?
- Argh. I wish I had some spare time to do some code.
