Smart Tea Project

Smart Tea Project is an expanded electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) system:

Smart Tea is about improving the information environment for chemists doing chemistry - within and beyond the lab. Smart Tea is about supporting chemists in the preparation, execution, analysis and dissemination of their experimental work.

I love the way the project is being motivated and framed: make tea with household appliances and with standard laboratory equipment.  Record your process in a paper lab notebook.  How can that process be replicated (and improved) in an ELN setup?

One of the nice aspects of electronifying a lab notebook is that you should then be able to integrate other electronic data from other lab information systems, rather than printing and attaching data dumps.  There was a lot of discussion about this at CENSA.
