FatFinger.JS

FatFinger is a library that allows you to run JavaScript full of typos. It will look at your code, attempt to guess at your intent, and do its best to make the code runnable. Rather than a tool to clean up code, FatFinger encourages the programmer to leave the code full of errors and fully embrace the chaos of JavaScript. [more inside]

Livejournal Archive Tools

There were no good tools for downloading your Livejournal archive here in the year of our lord 2016, so I dusted off my exceedingly dusty Ruby book and set about trying to see if I could maybe fix that. [more inside]

Neural Networks Translate Images to Poetry

Neuralsnap generates an image caption using a model I trained (convolutional and recurrent neural networks), then uses another character-level recurrent neural net that I trained on ~40 MB of poetry to expand the caption into a poem. (In this example, generated from a Rothko painting, the red text is the direct image caption, and the rest is the poetic expansion.) [more inside]

A Twitter bot that draws your code

@dupdupdraw is a Twitter bot that tries to make up programs to draw things on its own and also draws what you tweet at it. Look at the favorites for a quick Best Of, or read a quick intro or the more thorough README. All programs are valid, and the worst that can happen is you get a random solid color.

esoteric.codes

esoteric.codes is my blog about esolangs (esoteric programming languages), aimed at a less technical audience. Esolangs are created by programmers at play, challenging conventions of coding, looking at how we communicate with the machine, and indulging the strangest what-if scenarios in code. The blog looks at the ideas behind these languages and explores connections to code art and conceptual practices -- but it is also a fanzine to my favorite languages. It features interviews with the original designers (recently: Ben Olmsead of Malbolge, coming up soon David Morgan-Mar of Piet and Whenever) alongside posts about common themes between languages (e.g. languages that produce no output). It was recently awarded the 2014 Arts Writers Grant.

The Code Challenge - a maths treasure hunt by the BBC

I helped make the games and treasure hunt for a BBC Two series called The Code, a fantastic three-part series about maths in the world around us presented by Prof. Marcus du Sautoy. While it's just finished, you can still watch clips; play games about tessellation, prime numbers, symmetry (this one is awesome), and physics; and tackle our beautiful, free 84 page book of puzzles. Then there's the treasure... [more inside]
