EveryName.info | An unordered list of every name

I don't know why it's never occurred to me to post to Projects before, so here is the latest and dumbest: an unordered, endless list of names. All the names there are.

word.camera generates paragraphs from a photograph

With Clarifai, an image concept extraction API utilizing convolutional neural networks, and ConceptNet, a lexical relationship database, I built a template system to generate paragraphs of text from photographs. word.camera is responsive — it works on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. The code behind it is open source and available on GitHub, because lexography is for everyone. [more inside]

Library of Emoji

We all know that many new emoji were recently added to the Unicode standard. What we don't know is what emoji will be added in the years to come. Library of Emoji is a Twitter bot that speculates, several times each day, on what new emoji might appear in future Unicode revisions—emoji that today may seem unreasonable, but someday may be commonplace: COOKWARE SYMBOL. MOUTHPART. PRIAPIC SYMBOL FOR UNICYCLIST WATERLOO. [more inside]

Pizza Clones

You've heard this one: "Every pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself." Pizza Clones is a Twitter bot that attempts to imitate this joke and elaborate on it, replacing the noun, adjective and condition with stuff it randomly finds on Twitter. Examples: "Every house is an open house unless you have NO pants on"; "Every weekend is a normal weekend if you regret at least one decision"; "Every time is an appropriate time if it wasn't for my aunt Barbara."

Cryptozookeeper

I spent five years making a graphical text adventure about cryptozoology. I cast actors*, created and photographed cryptids and (leveraging the magic of Creative Commons) listened to hundreds of hours of music until I had a 70-song soundtrack. I visited New Mexico twice to shoot on location and tried to make it as funny as possible -- as if Magnetic Scrolls were coming back any day now. It's called Cryptozookeeper, and while you can buy a two-disc pack, it's also available to download, in whole and for free, for Windows, Linux and OS X. [more inside]

Listje - Quick, easy-to-use, text entry list app

I put this project together because I was really frustrated with having to make shopping lists by entering items one by one. With Listje, you can type in a plaintext list with many rows (or paste it in from a document). The list will be converted to an interactive checklist, and there's save functionality so you can retrieve it later if you like, perhaps from your phone, via the URL. A simple tap checks off items, and you can easily hide them from the view. [more inside]

Filthy Ditty: Daily text experiments in April 2011

Nominally in celebration of National Poetry Month, I challenged myself to make one experimental text a day in April 2011. It was a lot of fun, and I wanted to share the results with my fellow mefites. I thought these experiments in particular might be of interest: blackout poems made from Magic: the Gathering cards; dithered bitmaps of the average Unicode character; a Chrome extension that randomly scrambles the poetry "subjects" on poetryfoundation.org; and Nintendo ROMs with words replaced at random (Faxanadu, in particular---with video!).

Fuck Lorem Ipsum

In my line of work, I have to do a lot of html mockups of website designs. I've been using Malevole's text generator instead of Lorem Ipsum boilerplate for years, but always yearned for a more feature-rich version - one that could insert tags and filter the sources of dummy text. I finally got around to making my own. [more inside]
