  • Two Chrome Extensions I’ve Started Using

    I’ve started using two chrome extensions lately.  Both are pretty simple and are designed to make one thing easier. The first is The Png Project which makes it so that on any Noun Project page, you can download the image as a png.  I used it when I made Aaron Jorbin in 2011. The second is […]

  • Real Time Search and Social Analytics

    Over at AddThis, we just released an expanded version of our Live View Analytics. We now are bringing together what was multiple screens of live data in to a single live view. This was a pretty fun project. The server generates a stream of data that we then use client side to render all of […]

  • Why be clean, when you can use Node Dirty

    During my presentation at WordCamp Philly, one of the people in audiance asked me what (JavaScript) libraries I like and I rattled off a few of them.  I thought it would make more sense to start writing them down and sharing them.  I’m going to start things off with a library that I use for […]

  • Dancing and Coding

    Two weeks ago I switched to primarily standing at work.  I’ve found that while my foot are kind of sore by the end of the day, (though I’m hoping the barefoot shoes I just ordered help with that).  I also have definitely noticed an increase in the amount of dancing I do while coding.  My coworkers can attest […]
