Auto-generating library catalog tags

I don't have much of a background in programming, but I do have a bit of one in libraries. This was my final paper for a graduate course from last semester. I'm curious to hear from other people in the library and programming fields about the viability of the idea. Is it useful, feasible, doable? The basic idea is to automatically attach search terms to library items that end up being used because of those search terms. I'd love to hear what you think!

Wired's Star Trek's 100 Crew Members Ranked (With links)

Wired thought they would rile people up by ranking Star Trek characters. But, they just provided a list. No links with context or further info. So I've done that. Mainly I wanted to fiddle with a heroku app and learn Bootstrap. Please enjoy my really cruddy looking "app." I want to continue to work on it until it looks nice. Most of the links work. I may have missed one or two. It's an ongoing journey.

The New Code

Seven years ago I asked about blogging solutions on AskMe. A year after that, I had the site up and running. But times (and best practices) change, so I've completely rewritten, redesigned, rebranded and relaunched my web development site. [more inside]

A robot will do your job one day. You should start building it.

Intervals, online time, task and project management software

Intervals is an online app that I've been working on for several years. Our web design and development agency built it, and uses it, to track our time, tasks and projects. Thought I'd share it with other web-savvy types who might find Intervals useful. There is also a lot of great content in the blog as well, where we've been writing about web design and development for several years. Lots of great content there.

Infinimapper - HTML5-based Map Editor

The famous Tiled map editor is a powerful open source application for creating tile-based maps for use in video games, but what happens when we bring that level of versatility to anything that can run a modern browser? Add in the ability to create maps as large as you can imagine, allow editors in the same space to see each others work in real time, and this open source project could help facilitate a level of collaboration previously difficult to achieve. The end goals of this include use as a classroom teaching tool to spark young imaginations and hopefully generate interest in software development through simple games. It's a work in progress, so please feel free to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see.

New Jersey Land Change Viewer

"Changing Landscapes in the Garden State" is an ongoing collaborative report between Rowan University and Rutgers University that analyzes the urban development patterns in New Jersey since 1986. The latest version of the report was released at the end of July to include the latest data from 2007. Previous versions of the report included static maps of development patterns; this release is the first to include several interactive, animated maps that demonstrate urban growth, farmland, forest and wetlands loss, as well as increases in impervious surface. A final map shows the land that actually remains and is vulnerable to future development. There's not much left in New Jersey; approximately 1 million acres remain.

Find bugs by Jinxing your multi-threaded code.

I work at a start-up founded by my thesis advisor. We have just released our first product: Jinx. Jinx makes multi-threaded code 'unlucky' so bugs occur (and can be fixed) more quickly and easily. Its free for academic and non-commercial use or you can get a 30-day trial. We'd love any and all feedback. Look below the fold for more info on multi-threaded code, debugging, and the research Jinx is based on. [more inside]
