I am working on a collection of software to run small,medium, and
large sized organic farms/permaculture installations, provide
automation, sensing, etc. (to be released)

I am writing some of the applications in erlang, and so a network of
Freedom Boxes could handle data gathering. Possibly recording to data
grid such as iRODS. Sensor networks and accompanying applications
could benefit from both Jabber and AMQP via RabbitMQ.  I've also
considered using a cluster of freedom boxes as a Eucalyptus "cloud"
for the aforementioned applications.
