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 …

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 …

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 …

A bit about passwords these days

The WSJ has been kind enough to make a publicly available list of scrubbed passwords from Gawker Media. And for all the password rules out there, it’s these passwords you might wanna make sure you don’t have. So click the link, go to “View”->”Filter”, “Starts with” and pick a letter of your present password, and …

Internet’s effect on Intelligence, or vice-versa?

The Internet may provide opportunity for undisciplined thought & life (with sociological influences and reactions) but there are solutions for the patient & data-visualization futurists/opportunists.

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 …

When a URL is not url (death to flash)

Media center/libraries are a joke. They require files to view, yet the present state of the web is pushing towards renting a stream. Across the landscape, your media distribution channels are too varied to allow for any progress on the part of the people/users.  File-ownership is where it started.. but ownership somehow didn’t equal distrution …

Augmented Reality, AI: the Geek Dream

With new tech, there’s new challenges to previously invisible and unknown divisions in our lives. The old debate was the “intrusion” of public life on the television into our private lives: the public/private border. Or take the kind of thinking computing requires. What do I want to do? Which program do I use? Where do …
