The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

Paid Search “Campaigns”

Google Analytics doesn’t always see Paid Search as a Campaign. And they are right. Paid Search numbers more often just cut into your search numbers than give you more numbers. Remember what’s going on here: a user searches something – and your listing comes up #3. Paid search adds it to the BS on top …

Smartphones, Tablets & Dumbphones: Which are glanceable?

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m into tech, and that perhaps too much (by most reasonable standards). But what gets me about tech isn’t the tech itself (believe it or not!). I’m actually into 2 very distinct aspects of tech: it’s knowledge-utility, and the consequence for daily routine (ultimately very psychologically focused!). I’ve ¬†recently posted …

The Future of Web

Awhile back in the recent past (as some may remember), Wired had an article claiming, “The Web is dead, Long live the Internet.” I get that.¬† Especially as my phone updates it’s status & downloads RSS feeds & images in non-HTML+CSS formatting/without a “browser.” Here’s the kicker: why are websites still around? I’m sure there’s …

Back in the biz, oh yeah, nothing changed..

There’s always been a line-of-division between those who make pretty pictures, and those who have to make those pictures do something. Interaction designers have come to fill the void, but if there are none, there remains a 1999-level of disconnect. You remember last century, right? The one that gave us OfficeSpace, Matrix & Fight Club? …

Computers are anti-reflective, people are hard to predict, and maybe I have a solution

It seems that computers, without features like a global “recent documents”/history, stop us from realizing just how much time & anti-productive we’ve been. Sure we can view our browser-history & recent-documents in Word, but that’s still disparate & no one will do that. There’s really no features which allow us to analyze our activities on …
