I've been thinking about the things that I spend time doing that I don't currently have automated, and a big one of them is banking- paying bills, transferring funds to accounts, etc.
And that's really because none of the retail banks I know of offer that. If they did, that would be a real game changer.
Yup, and the two concepts dovetail nicely.
The problem I have with plain text accounting is that it is descriptive and then requires a second action, rather than what I'd like, which is for one process to control both the plain text file but also initiate real work.
So if I tell the computer to pay the electricity bill in the amount of $234.56 then that gets recorded in my accounting file, and at the same time, the bank is told to make the payment.
