Tumbleweird is a free, monthly, alternative zine distributed in and around Washington state's Tri-City (Kennewick, Richland, Pasco) area.

My friend Logan and I started the zine last year. At that time, it was printed in black & white (regular copy paper folded in half with saddle stitch binding). In February 2017 we switched to a tabloid format (24 pages, 8 of them in color, about 15 inches by 10 inches, same binding). Every issue is available on our web site as a PDF. Its current tagline is "Your local liberal rag." It has comics, a crossword, horoscopes, art, local events, and articles. [more inside]

The Elwha river was the world's largest dam removal project, with the first dam removed in 2011 and the second in 2014. Since then, the watershed has changed dramatically, almost entirely for the better. [more inside]

Books for (Washington) DC

As part of Open Data Day DC, I began the Books for DC (aka 'booksfordc') project with the goal of increasing user engagement with the DC Public Library's many wonderful resources. Last month, I wrote a web scraper that publishes a Twitter feed of new additions to the DCPL book catalog. And I just released a Chrome browser extension that lets you know what books and ebooks are available at the DCPL when browsing Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes & Noble. [more inside]

50 days 50 ways

I'm about to move away from DC after living here for 10 years; I know that "I'm leaving town" pieces are trendy now, but I wanted to reflect back on the positive ways that living in DC has affected me and enriched my life [though a few do stray from this main topic] via a series of short essays & photoessays on a daily Tumblr. The goal has been to churn through a lot of ideas rather than make something perfect--more NaNoWriMo than Goodbye to All That.

DCTN: shows tonight in washington, dc

It's a website with one purpose: it tells you what shows are happening tonight in Washington, DC. In a big, simple list that works really well on phones. It's also an open source project I just wrote about.

Washington, DC Police Tweets

An open-ended research tool for everything that the DC Police Department writes on their twitter feed. The department made the controversial decision to encrypt all radio communications last year, with no allowance for journalists, and thus have devoted more time to twitter. The site allows you to view the last three thousand tweets and quickly analyze factors like age, city quadrant, gender, etc., though a clever regular-expression-based interface.
