putting WIDW together…

After a long time without looking into all that Jabber and WITW stuff some work by Lost Boy came to my attention [via: Phil Wilson]. The only missing piece is a nice desktop GUI to set my location and publish this change via Jabber, that’s a TODO. But for now I can:

  1. start a gateway between WITW webservice and a jabber pubsub node, this will look for updates on the jabber node and update WITW according to the informations received.
  2. use a python program to update a jabber pubsub node, to let others know that my geo positions has been updated
  3. and finaly [take a look at where I am][4]

Next Step: build a GUI to set the geo position, maybe using Python and wxPython
