If anyone is looking for a project...

I was toying with the idea of taking various events such as call logs, 
sms, gps, wifi, bluetooth, etc and storing them in a journal and posting 
them to a website every so often, when net access is available.

The website would display them using the Simile Timeline [1] component, 
which I see has moved to Google code [2].
Numerous examples are available [3]

It occurred to me that this format would suit touch screen well.
Kinetic scrolling, tap for action; read sms, return a missed call, view 
calendar event.

I don't have the talent to implement this on the phone, but it would be 
a neat app, and one I'm not aware exists on any phone. yet.

If anyone is interested, pick up and run with it please.
