I was scrounging around my house yesterday and found a NSLU2 (http://www.nslu2-linux.org/) to donate to mushroom automation or other efforts. It's a tiny box with ethernet and usb, runs Debian linux from a thumb drive!
Currently it is labelled, resting on top of the incubator ---- it should support many kinds of peripherals: cameras , arduinos, stand-alone sensors, etc --- with a usb hub or some modding there is potential for many more usb ports. I also brought in a cheapo web cam for time lapse --- it has surprisingly decent picture quality and seems to play nicely with the box. Local storage is quite limited but we can always move images elsewhere.
I will speak with Jake , if anyone on this list wants to take initiative and improve or explore this, email me and I will share login info with you!
