No Scary Parts: a browser extension that skips scary scenes on Disney+
No Scary Parts is a chrome extension that skips creepy scenes in classic Disney movies on Disney+. Since the beginning, every Disney film, without fail, has included a weird scene or two that traumatizes generations of kids, from Dumbo's pink elephants to Fantasia's Night on Bald Mountain. Currently I have 5 movies supported. If you have a sensitive toddler or don't want flashbacks to your own childhood, try out this extension.
Infinimapper - HTML5-based Map Editor
The famous Tiled map editor is a powerful open source application for creating tile-based maps for use in video games, but what happens when we bring that level of versatility to anything that can run a modern browser? Add in the ability to create maps as large as you can imagine, allow editors in the same space to see each others work in real time, and this open source project could help facilitate a level of collaboration previously difficult to achieve. The end goals of this include use as a classroom teaching tool to spark young imaginations and hopefully generate interest in software development through simple games. It's a work in progress, so please feel free to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see.

Diary Dig: Wikileaks Afghan War Diaries explorer
A richly faceted and deeply hyperlinked browser for all of the as-yet released Afghan War Diaries from Wikileaks. Allows you to search by type, category, number of casualties, and many other parameters. Within each document, uncommon phrases that are shared among multiple documents are linked together, allowing you to go down the rabbit hole where you might not have otherwise thought to. My hope is that this will allow reporters, researchers, and the general public to better understand the scope and nature of the US war in Afghanistan, and the contents of this important archive. Source code available.
