Heh, as John Crow points out, a cool way to look at work is to think in terms of being "between vacations". So, here is a fun/experimental hack from between my previous (bday on Santorini) and next (family visit at Lake Constance) vacation: It's a tweetsphere cousin of SPARQLBot who can give answers to user-defined CrunchBase API commands. (Instructions for the "Pimp MY API" tool.)
In order to use the bot, just send a known command call to cbbot (using the @-convention), for example "
@cbbot, founder of Flickr". A tweet with the answer should appear on your "Replies" tab (or under "Recent", if you are following cbbot, see screenshot below).
The bot is implemented as a long-running PHP process (*cough*), you may have to re-start the script in case you don't get an answer within a few minutes.
