Egress Methods
Paul Simon claimed that there must be fifty ways to leave your lover, but in his famous song he named far fewer than that. Egress Methods, a twitter bot, fulfills the promise that Mr. Simon could not—and then some—tweeting a randomly generated formula for lover-leaving every few hours, from now into eternity.

Finnegans Sleep
I took the first few paragraphs from the first ten chapters of Finnegans Wake, printed them onto strips of paper, then punched out the vowels (always Y!) and ran the cards through a punchcard music box player mounted on the wall in my bathroom.

Hello! UX Launchpad is a one day design course in Seattle. The event is built with non-designers in mind, and so far we've had a great blend of developers, PMs, fine artists, and interaction designers looking to learn more. Classes are designed to be small and hands-on.

DotDotCo: All Signs, All The Time
Who loves signage? I love signage. I also love constantly taking pictures of signs while traveling, and figured it'd be nice to start a tumblr of pleasant signs. Handsome signs, that's all.

Notes To Self
Just a simple app to store and organize notes. Still very beta. Uses the browser's localStorage or google drive for note storage so you don't have to sign up for anything, or remember another username/password. If you have a minute, take a look, and let me know if you find anything that didn't work like you'd expect it to, of it you have ideas about how to make it more useful.

Straight Outta Downton
It's what it sounds like -- a rap about Downton Abbey based on N.W.A.'s "Straight Outta Compton." An animated music video of sorts, just for fun.

mapschool
I work in maps but am generally frustrated with the way the field is taught: so this is my attempt at making educational materials that dial down the corporate tie-ins and talk about concept. I also write about the process of making it and am planning on illustrating & printing it for free/cheap for students.

Picflood
Picflood presents an unfiltered stream of pictures publicly posted to Twitter, updated in real time, with or without a filter for text in the tweet. Because of the specific Twitter API stream that Picflood hooks into, users see only a small subset of Twitter photos, but they still come through fast enough that it's hard to fully process each image before it disappears. Very NSFW.

thinkContext: Progressive Browser Extension
thinkContext is a web browser extension which adds contextually relevant, politically progressive information to your web browsing. It works by matching the URL of search engine results, sites you visit or text advertising against a database of progressive campaigns. If it finds a match it inserts unobtrusive icons into the browser. Currently it pulls information from a Union Hotel Guide, an Ethical Restaurant Guide, the Stop Rush Limbaugh advertiser database, The Green Pages, the Bechdel Test Movie database, and the B Corporation directory.

Blorpy: Interesting stories found in comments
Internet comments are a cesspool, but I love them. I've been finding and sharing an interesting comment, mostly ones that tell a great personal story, every day for almost the last year at blorpy.com. Some are from Metafilter, some from Reddit and some from Quora. Example posts: More about my reasoning and my thoughts on comments in general here: Comments Aren't Crap

A History of the Future in 100 Objects
What are the 100 objects that future historians will pick to define our 21st century? A javelin thrown by an enhanced Paralympian, far further than any normal human? Virtual reality interrogation equipment used by police forces? The world's most expensive glass of water, mined from the moons of Mars? Or desire modification drugs that fuel a brand new religion?
