  • Color the Smiley
    Over the years I have made a lot of little web experiments and geegaws. I’ve made hangman games and drawing programs and random text generators. At one place I worked I helped make a thing that would turn an uploaded photo of a face into a Terminator face! I’ve made so many of these kind…
  • Who doesn’t love code?
    Longtime blogger and longtime pal MAS mentioned me over in Make and Host Your Own Soundboard yesterday. I am glad to have contributed to more software. I dig being able to give to code that people use, even if it’s for no money. I love even more that the whole thing is up on GitHub….

  • Richard Gate (and jQuery)
    Richard Gate is my brother-in-law. I’ve mentioned him once before. I put together a website for him in February 2007. I think it’s a great little site that does precisely what it needs to. It introduces you to an artist’s work. I worked with him this week to provide something interesting on the main richardgate.com…

  • Random Affirmation
    Small project that, on click, loads new affirmations. A photo from Leah, some jQuery with AJAX, and voila. I like it.

  • NC JavaScript & jQuery Camp
    I had a lot of fun at Durham’s “NC JavaScript & jQuery Camp” today. Lots of driving, but even more learning and connection-making. I was particularly happy to create my first <canvas> drawing from watching @miketaylr‘s slides on HTML5. Here’s the source: <html> <head> <script> window.onload = function() { var ctx = document.querySelector('#c').getContext('2d'); ctx.lineWidth =…

  • jQuery Southwest Virginia
    I have no presumptions about how many folks in Southwest Virginia are JavaScript programmers and jQuery fans, but given the nice interface jQuery has given for meetups (they are using ning under the hood), I thought I’d set up a meetup for Roanoke / Blacksburg / New River Valley folks who program in JavaScript. If…

  • Sheepies in the Vast Gray Field
    As you may have seen previously, I’ve been experimenting with building a game with jQuery as the infrastructure over on joecrawford.com. This is a screenshot. The super-cute illustrations were created by Dug. The concept of a game with sheep was suggested by a few people, including MAS. Ping said cats and mice, but I quite…
