xn--qeiaa.ws: Emoji Domain Registration

Domains can be more than just letters and numbers. Most people have no idea they can just type a bunch of hearts in their address bar and go to a domain... and yet, it works!

Benbot

I built a personal Siri, accessible over the web. It's a work in progress, but I thought I'd share what I've made so far, and how I built it.

Malimbe: an asynchronous server-side web framework in Swift

After Apple open-sourced their Swift programming language and released a preliminary Linux port, I started putting together a server-side web framework for it. So did many others, though my web framework is (as far as I know) the only one to use futures for concurrency. It's still very much a work in progress, though now has a few toy apps, some useful middleware, and a Swiftily protocol-based HTML generation mechanism. [more inside]

Monthly Damage

Are you trying to buy a house? Well, if so, this tells you how much you'll have to pay each month for it, factoring in taxes and loan terms, so you can immediately find out if a house or condo is just too bonkers for you.

Glowy Clock

We used to have an LCD clock radio that glowed various rainbow colors. I "voted it off the island," so to speak, because it seemed like clock radio was a waste of space in the age of clocks-on-everything, but we missed spacing out while looking at it, so I put together this web substitute.

Let's build a browser engine!

I work for Mozilla as a web browser developer. I've found that it's hard to learn the inner workings of a browser, so I started building a “toy” HTML/CSS rendering engine designed to be easy to understand and modify. This is the first in a series of articles that will explain the code I wrote, and also walk you through the process of writing your own toy rendering engine from scratch.

Whispering Machine

is one of three strange glimpses into Us Conductors, a theremin novel by me. Each of the trio of sites visits a different passage from the book through the lens of a different designer, with different contributing musical artists: Whispering Machine, by Luc Mikelsons & Adam Benzen, has sounds by Bear In Heaven; Our shadows slanting by the lamps..., by Brendan Reed, has sounds by Owen Pallett; I gazed at a long shelf of batteries..., by Jez Burrows, has sounds by an unnamed musician.

Internet Directory

According to ICANN, .COM domains were intended for business, .ORG for nonprofit, and .NET for internet providers and "Web Portals." Internet Directory is a listing of every domain using these TLDs -- beginning with the 115 million .COMs -- as they stand in early 2014. On a fast browser, it takes 599 days to watch every domain scroll by. [more inside]

Just Graph It

A simple app for creating a line graph. It works by entering a number, a date-time is automatically associated with that number when it is entered. Two or more numbers and you got yourself a line graph. Not much more to it, there's the ability to create multiple graphs, and to edit entries, but tt's light weight by design. Note: Requires a modern browser with HTML5. It worked for me on PC (Chrome), Android and iPhone, it should work on everything else. There's a shorter alternate url as well: g.joha.us [more inside]

Extrasolar

A few years ago, I helped build a prototype of an original idea for a web game, and today it's out of beta and open to all! "What is it?" you ask. It's one of the very few games in which you are yourself and not playing a character. It is an experience you can have over the course of a month or so, a few minutes at a time. It increases your understanding of exobiology. It's exploring a new planet, one picture at a time. [more inside]

Shoot the Rancors!

Shoot the Rancors! is a retro arcade-style game implemented in pure CSS — no Flash or Javascript — as an exercise to see how far CSS can be stretched and abused. Players proceed through levels of shooting moving Rancors (from the Star Wars films), with all user interaction, transitions, animations, and level progressions implemented in HTML and CSS3. It should work cross-platform on modern desktop browsers.

Gametron 7000

Gametron 7000 (GT7K) is a web-based game-building toolkit, designed and built by myself for use in non-programming-centric game design classes I've been teaching in NYC. It's almost all visual (no coding) and allows non-tech-savvy game creators to make fairly simple 2D sprite-based games. Even though it's a little rough around the edges, hopefully it's fun to use!

BookHunch.com: the anti-Pinterest bookmarking site

This is a new project I've just released in beta. I was inspired to do it b/c I was getting tired of stale bookmarked links: a lot of useful blog articles disappear and neither web.archive.org nor Google's cache were very helpful. I'm calling it the "anti-Pinterest" because the focus is on preserving text, using a readability-style algorithm to strip away ads and other web page boilerplate. It's still new, and a little rough around the edges, but I'm interesting in hearing what you guys think! If you sign up today, contact me through the form on the site with your username and I'll give you free access for a month.

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]

Bitstreet Framework

I've been developing software for around 8 years. I've discovered the basic problems people need solved over and over again to have a successful presence online. I've managed to come up with a project that has almost all of them solved from the beginning. This allows you to continue doing what you do best without having to find ways to "send email newsletters" or "create a calendar of events"; these basic needs will already be figured out for you. The best part is you can have some powerful software to focus on the success of your organization, not the troubleshooting of technical problems.

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.

20 Years of the Web - What's your web IQ?

Did you know that the web was born on August 6, 1991?! That's the day the first server went on on ol' Tim Berners-Lee's desk at CERN [wikipedia citation]. So this Saturday is its 20th birthday. To honor the web at this milestone, my agency friends and I created a quiz to find out who's got the most #webcred, and see how far we've all come (there is a question about the McDonald's homepage from 1996... remember when an editor at Wired Magazine bought the URL and took suggestions from readers about what to do with it?!). Take a trip down memory lane with us by playing our quiz, and reminiscing about the days *before* social media.

Zombies of the World: A field guide to the undead.

A full color heavily illustrated book that describes 20 species of undead, their history, evolution, survival tips and more. It's already receiving great reviews like this and this. Zombies of the World reveals the undead to be a valuable part of our ecosystem and the key to new discoveries in medicine and technology. Few outside the scientific community even realize that creatures like the Egyptian Mummy (Mortifera mumia aegyptus) are actually zombies. Some species are even harmless to humans. The Dancing Zombie (Mortifera immortalis choreographicus) only seeks to thrill us with elaborate dance routines. Even if we could annihilate all zombies, we would lose knowledge potentially vital to our own survival. After decades of research, we have no idea why zombies never tire or stop. They possess an endless source of energy to shamble or (in some cases) sprint after us. Unlocking this mystery could benefit all humanity.The web series on Youtube further explains these mysteries.
