#720: WorldWideWeather

As a person keen on the variety which weather brings to life, I’m dismayed by the incessant uniformity of the online ‘environment’.

Today’s invention is a way to represent the weather, which an online author is currently experiencing, on his/her website. If the local weather report says it’s snowing near where I live, then browsers everywhere would apply a snow effect to my sites (one of a small repertoire of weather-effect plug-ins). This idea could be extended to affect the author’s desktop too.

With any luck, this would have the effect of uniting sites from regions which, although in different countries, were experiencing similar climatic conditions. It’s a very small planet, after all.
