New site for Anthony Bourdain, taking a deep dive into the destinations visited in Parts Unknown. His goal for the project: "go as far as we can, go as weird as we can, as deep as we can and as smart as we can." [more inside]
VGR2016 is an ongoing 5-way blog envisioned as half a way for a bunch of UK-based friends to keep up, half an excuse to replay and review old video games, and half World Domination. The third half is the charm. We also feature both Music and Opinions.
So, a couple of friends and I read a blog called The Toast, and we love it an awful lot. But its web site was janky and slow, so we redesigned it. The new version of the site went live today, and we wrote a bunch of blog posts about how we did it. It was fun.
A daily bite, drink, and story from around the world. Breakfast and 5 O'Clock Somewhere are two new sections on Roads & Kingdoms, a food & travel journalism site that's gotten love on The Blue and was just nominated for a James Beard award for best food coverage. [more inside]
A collection of great first lines. Just launched this week. If you want to recommend a first line, please comment! Excited to share my first project with you, I've been an AskMeFi lurker for years.
This site came about after a friend attempted to eat 6 Arby's roast beef sandwiches in an hour, on a dare. Halfway through, an argument ensued about the terms... and we found ourselves wishing we had some kind of formal document, listing out all the rules of the bet. In a nutshell, SpitShake lets you create a free, customizable contract that you can print out for everyone involved to sign. [more inside]
Yet another Wordpress blog for the post secondary arts institution I work for.
It's real. It's a thing. It's my webcomic, which I wisely named "Oh Shit, I'm In Grad School". I've been drawing comics as part of my grad work in Rhetoric and Writing (a subdiscipline of English that studies writing, the history of writing, the teaching of writing, writing that is awesome, and doesn't worry about literature) but they have all been photocopied print zines. As an installation I'm debuting at the Computers and Writing conference, I have started a webcomic version using Comicpress. [more inside]
Thanks to the advice of several MeFites, I've finally got round to building a site to show off my projects (how delightfully meta!), write about the interaction of the web and small business, and maybe drum up a little freelance WordPress work.
