Oh this is just one of those things that makes you realize Pittsburgh is filled with creative smart people. Check out this service (based in Pittbsurgh) that lets you set up a wake up call where you pick the artist or a poem for your wake up call – Tele-Art.org
I am particularly fond of the story behind this project. From Tele-Art.org…
I keep sleeping through the alarm. But a phone call gets me up every time.
So just get a wake up call.
I don’t know…I don’t have any money…
I bet they have something on the web where they call you with an ad and it’s free.
. It would be cooler if you could wake up with a poem. How hard would that be to do?
Well…all you would have to do is XXXXX, XXX, and XXXXX then XXXX software XXXX server XXXX, XXXXX phone XXXXX, XXXX mp3s maybe XXXX agents XXX. Something like that
We should write a grant.
I tried it this morning and was happily roused by Stu Braun playing Deep Sleeper 🙂
Now if only they'd record my parents voices from yonder years yelling at me to "wake up, you lazy monkey!"
