Programmatic Access and Control
How to build generic programmatic access solution to help people scale thinking and doing?
The desire to take control and programmatically access and manage all one's personal web accounts and web resources, -- is a need of any generalist person. beepb00p has coined the term "HPI" (Human Programming Interface) to refer to it, and developed a version of it at github.com/HPI, though, there had been other attempts at a similar end goal, such as the github.com/metadrive by Mindey, and we perhaps would find others, such as Almond's Thingipedia by Monica S. Lam et al. at Stanford, trying to create open source virtual assistant, that inherently needs the ability to access diverse resources with high level actions.
The problem of access and control of one's web resources programmatically, is pervasive: every time you see someone writing a client library to interact with an API, or web crawler -- it's part of the problem. Every time you see someone write drivers to control robots, -- it's part of the problem.
I think, we merit discussions, and bringing people with interest in this together, to collect the best approaches, and try to create a paradigm for plug-and-play driver and data system, that would enable everyone of us to access and control our stuff programmatically, removing the necessity to use UIs of systems, and abstracting them into one powerful API to have high-level actions on all of them.
