scrum/kanban standup timer
(PARTIAL) SOLUTION: http://kirk.is/tools/standuptimer/ , a trivial webapp (on the same shared desktop screen) with a simple stopwatch to quietly keep track of time elapsed and a notepad to jot down what should be tabled and discussed at the end of the stand up. When the elapsed time is greater than the goal time, it simply changes to red - enforcement is still up to the team.
I also thought localStorage was about the right level of persistence for the goal time and table'd item textarea; enough to be lightly persistent, but no worries about the server grabbing information.
I was thinking about making a gong play or something when time was elapsed, but it just seemed like would be distracting.
I do dig being able to whip up things like this in short order.
