Screen Time

Every time I hear something about limiting screen time I cannot help but think about how poorly the concept has been thought out. If we talked about “food time” instead maybe that would help us think that while time matters (eating for hours each day is probably a bad idea), how long you eat probably […]

Portfolio Timeline

One of the things I ended up being dissatisfied with on my own portfolio was the timeline of my work history.1 At the time making an interactive multimedia timeline seemed like a good idea. Just the phrase “interactive multimedia timeline” sounds fancy, right? I made it using the KnightLab Timeline JS tool (which is a […]

Fake Hues

I heard Trump saying ‘fake news’ on the way in this morning and it led me to ‘fake hues.’ It’s been stuck in my head ever since. I thought this would have been done already but a cursory google search didn’t turn it up so . . . I took the image of Trump from […]

Re-Thinking My Portfolio

Below is the assignment I gave. I’m going to give it a shot starting with my own portfolio and then looking for aspirational goals in a subsequent post. Take a look around at portfolios other people are using. You’ll want to check out people in the field like Dr. Tressie McMillan Cottom but you’ll also […]

Pretty wild that John found me somehow and that we’re both involved in WordPress and […]

A Bit More on the Personal API

Keep trying to growths “personal API” stuff, but it feels like a strained replacement for “organization”. https://t.co/A6i2HUF44c — Area Man (@xwordy) April 19, 2016 The tweet above and Alan’s comment on the post (below) and figured I haven’t really made a chunk of why I’m doing this clear or even what I’m doing clear. I’m […]

Weekly Web Harvest (weekly)

What Makes Software Good? — Medium ““Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design.” This implies, for one, that good documentation does not excuse bad design. You can ask people to RTFM, but it is folly to assume they have read everything and […]
