Ten Thousand Sonnets

Using Python 2.7 and the Natural Language Toolkit, I created a program called Sonnetizer that generates 14-line rhyming sonnets in (mostly) iambic pentameter from any text corpus. Using Sonnetizer, I generated 10,000 unique sonnets from the sonnets of William Shakespeare, and compiled them into a PDF.

alsd - An Ableton Live set dumping utility

In the course of the recent end-of-year ritual of going through my past year's unfinished Ableton Live projects, I found myself writing a Python script to partially automate the task, by examining the Live sets and dumping information about them (namely, the tracks and the instrument/effect devices in them) as text.

Learn programming with Reeborg

Reeborg's World, an adaptation of Karel the Robot, is designed to teach programming. At present, only Javascript is taught but a Python version is planned for the near future. By design, the progression is very slow but the aim is to cover almost all the basic features (and keywords) of Javascript using a Test-Driven Learning approach. Reeborg's World is free to use and does not require any login.

Pogoapp: PaaS hosting startup by a couple Mefites

We started out as Rails developers trying to script capistrano deployments and somehow ended up hacking together a full platform-as-a-service system, run on dedicated servers, with S3-compatible distributed storage and a REST API/build process that's mostly heroku-compatible (i.e. Procfiles and buildpacks and one-time-processes). We've got support for Ruby 1.9.3 and 2.0 preview including Rails, node.js/CoffeeScript, python, php, etc etc. [more inside]

Readrboard

Filling a place between the Like Button and article comments, ReadrBoard is a bookmarklet that makes it easy to "react" to quotes, images, and video on a page. Run the bookmarklet (or embed the javascript if you are a publisher) on any website, select what interests you, and then click a button or add a tag. User profiles are auto-generated, showing a stream of what you've rated all across the web, capturing how readers feel about the pieces of content that grab them most. The goal is to help readers & publishers identify what online content people care about, and why. [more inside]

Kicksaver: Find and save Kickstarter projects ending soon.

Kicksaver finds Kickstarter projects that will end soon without meeting their funding goals. If you have a few dollars to spare, you can help tip a struggling project over its goal and prevent it from losing the pledges made so far. It also tweets endangered projects a few times a day. This is a weekend project I made as part of my continuing effort to teach myself programming. It's completely noncommercial, open source, and not affiliated with Kickstarter in any way (although I do think they're pretty great). [more inside]

80s Joke Line

My friends and I built an 80s Joke Line for a hackathon event here in Toronto. You can call in to hear a joke and then share one of your own. It's cobbled together using Flask (a Python web framework) and APIs from Twilio and Soundcloud. The code is on GitHub. We are a bit short on jokes. Maybe you can help with that. [more inside]

A modern Markov chain chatbot

It's never too soon for more Markov chains, right? cobe is a Markov based text generation framework that behaves like the venerable MegaHAL chatbot, backed with a more modern (SQLite) datastore. Its brain is kept entirely on disk, uses little memory, and scales reliably. A very minimal IRC client is included. [more inside]
