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.

Futurism

The Future is half-way here ..both halves

Everyone wants the future to get here quicker. Awhile ago it was battery life for laptops. That dissatisfaction allowed explosive growth for ARM-based devices (iPad, Tablets, etc). But on the software side, the iPad & Android tablets are only halfway there: they’ve got the UI, tonnes of “apps” & user-buy-in, but the ability to do …

Representing or Digitizing?

Over 100 years ago, the telephone revolutionized communication. How? Simply by acting as a repeater – analog to analog. Voices weren’t converted into words & then re-presented in another voice or tone, you heard what was spoken. I’ve been amazed at the past nearly 2 decades of handwriting-recognition attempts. Everyone in computing seems to think …

What’s Next, Steve?

I’ve suggested a few things this week to friends regarding Apple’s previous CEO. First, is that they have had a “succession plan” in place for a few years now. Second, that Jobs was much more than a CEO. People use terms like “visionary” do describe this quality, but fact of the matter, he ran Apple …

Ben Bashford – Notebook of Things – DisplayCabinet

This is such a fun idea. Some people might not like the “totem” idea, saying “What if it gets lost or can’t find it?” But there are plenty of applications that use totems already, particular… children’s toys! Can you imagine a kid putting cookie monster on that circle & the latest Sesame Street clip with …

Freedom of choice, or freedom to move on

The Economist has a blog post (2 years old!) regarding freedom & user-convenience. It’s nice to see the author string together various contexts suffering under the same problem (from e-med records to the everyman’s Mac/Win choice). But this is a common issue at hand, and actually, one which theologians are often faced with. I recently …

Future is awesome?

There’s such a future-push within the web-world, it’s a tad crazy (and ppl know it). The fact that I’m writing this short note is more about my interest in preservation that publication. I’d like to look back one day and say “Ha! I was sooo wrong (or right!).” So without further ado, here’s my “Future …

Private Space Flight

With the latest NASA buzz being on “commercial spaceflight“, I figured I would do my part to be curious enough about what that means. Below is a simple bar-graph (height = ..height! in feet ) of each of the following: Low Earth Orbit 1056000 Glenn’s First Orbit 612480 Offically “Space” 328083 WhiteKnightTwo Plane 60000 SpaceShipTwo …

Recipe Manager of my Dreams

There’s got to be a million crappy software recipe managers out there. My major concern is that each website now has it’s own version (from foodnetwork & epicurious to kraft!) –how UNinteroperable are these?! The best I get is to physically print-out the recipies. How helpful / futuristic is that? Not at all. Gourmet to …
