  • track TV usage
    • simple timer which tracks on vs. off
    • no other measurement. TV is treated as by definition unproductive and cognition-sucking time
  • track how long the kettle spends boiling water
    • start is defined as "turned on from off"
    • done is defined as whistling
    • finished is defined as the action of turning off from on
    • how do you sense how much water gets poured in
    • doesn't really solve a problem other than measuring what something (boiling water) happens in parallel to something else
