Figured I would share this new integration of beeminder in my life. Despite having a sit/stand desk, I have found myself increasingly falling in to the quicksand trap of sitting. The solution? A Raspberry Pi logging my standing time to a beeminder goal (www.beeminder.com/icole/standing)
The raspberry pi set up is documented here for those interested:
I used the initial script in the tutorial to read the magnetic sensor and added some simple logging of the minutes to beeminder https://github.com/icole/beeminder_glue/blob/master/standing/desk_sensor.py.
Here are some pictures of the set up http://imgur.com/a/vhIau
