Joe Crawford

I’m a web developer, and I love to swim, bodysurf, and write code. I’m into collecting toy robots. The tiles below are links to an assortment of pages and recent posts. Here's more about me.

I'm glad you dropped by. Feel free to send a webmention, or leave a comment or sign the guestbook. Every two weeks I have been hosting Front End Study Hall events. Learn more on events.indieweb.org.

Overdue for a shave. Good week though.

Toy Robots
New Bot Day! Welcome Tracerbot! Made by @mukikim_toys it can follow a thick marker line and was a terrific Christmas gift from @hellokellykuhl! It’s for ages 5 and up so I qualify. Gwen is suspicious though. Happy New Year!
New Bot Day! Welcome Ghost Eyes! A katana-wielding robot created by @day_toner as a variant of his Master 9 Eyes. A lovely gift from @hellokellykuhl!
New Bot Day! I acquired this push button puppet bot at a thrift mall in Chicago. Super charming artifact. Maybe from the 60s. 1900s, anyway. It says “I’m Robot No. 3991” made by the Kohner Brothers. Great boxy design with classic right angles, rivets. Welcome Robot!
New Bot Day! Sox is a robot cat who first appeared in 2022’s Lightyear. Sox is a personal companion bot issued to Buzz by Star Command. Welcome Sox!

Anyone remember Mix Tapes? Cassette tapes are making a resurgence. Today I made a Cassette tape in CSS plus a little JavaScript to get the sprockets to turn and the magnetic tape to move from one side to the other. It’s in #codePen so you’re free to inspect the code and make your own. Link in bio. #CSS #Animation #Art
