Amorphia Apparel
"Look on my shirts, ye mighty, and despair!" One day, a few years ago, I woke up and decided I no longer wanted to wear any clothes with words/designs I didn't make myself. So I started designing my own T-shirts and the people around me really seemed to like them, so I figured 'what the hell' why not try opening an online shirt shop. I like things a little more oblique or deadpan then most "funny shirt" sites, and I think it does a good job of reflecting my sensibilities. I hope you like 'em.

Hewn and Hammered
Devoted to my favorite subject, Craftsman / Mission / Prairie art, architecture and design. Will implement redesign soon. Am trying to figure out a better way to integrate the photo hosting, which I've moved to Flickr (having it on Typepad caused me to go over my bandwidth limit every month, and they won't extend it or let me buy more; I guess it wasn't a good idea to start it there, oh well!). Plus, it's a great way to get nice furniture at a steep discount and lots of free books!

A little site I put together to keep track of my travels (and yours). Features include Google Maps, a trip calendar, and integration with Flickr. No tags yet. Here's an example trip page. (I mentioned this on AskMe so I may as well post it here.)

A blog for great ideas you'll never do...
Roundtuit is a moderated community blog to connect people who have great ideas with people who have the desire and wherewithal (skills, time, tools, etc.) to make them happen. We call these ideas roundtuits, and there are three things we want to help you do with them: 1. Give a roundtuit: You have an idea, and share it here. 2. Claim a roundtuit: You see an idea that you will make real. 3. Get a roundtuit: You do it (and share your success with us here)!

Sports: Digg-style
For months I noticed that every time someone mentioned something about sports on digg they were mercilessly flamed for not posting about technology. So I built this.

I built this for market farmers, but it's just as useful for backyard gardeners. Keep track of all the varieties you're growing, when you planted them, started them in the greenhouse (or windowsill), transplanted them, and harvested them, and all the while your public page is continually updated with your information. Photos, history of all the heirloom varieties you grow, and information about your garden or farm will be readily available for your visitors. To see how your friends could see your garden (or your customers could see your farm), take a look at this example page: -- it's free to try, and $25 a year after the first month.

Save the 76 Ball!
Since buying up the Union 76 stations, ConocoPhillips has been quietly pulling down the iconic orange and blue ball signs. Their new sign is flat, dull, has reduced visibility and is the wrong colors. Many of the 76 Balls are still intact, but threatened. Our petition and boycott campaign, launched by lovers of urban design and powered by Drupal, seeks to mobilize consumers to convince ConocoPhillips to protect the balls that remain. 76 Ball designer Ray Pedersen has just joined the movement, and so we humbly ask that you "Please help us save Ray's balls."

My blog about last-place finishes at the Olympics was first posted to MetaFilter back during the Athens Games in 2004. It's been dormant since then, but I wanted to let you know that it's back for the Winter Games in Torino. (Just FYI; don't double-post this.) Find out who came last before NBC gets around to telling you who came first.

Everyware: The dawning age of ubiquitous computing
My first book!

It's about ubiquitous computing - a post-PC paradigm for computing in which information processing systems are deployed everywhere around us, all but imperceptibly.

This means things like smart buildings, smart furniture, smart clothing...even smart bathtubs. Networked street signs and self-describing soda cans. Gestural interfaces like those seen in "Minority Report." The RFID tags now embedded in everything from credit cards to the family pet. Even entire cities, like Korea's New Songdo, designed from the ground up to integrate all of these systems.

I ask how these systems might change us, and how we might shape them to our benefit. I've tried to keep the book accessible and nontechnical; it's pitched to the smart generalist who's interested in understanding how "information processing dissolving in behavior" is already reshaping our lives, transforming our understanding of the cities we live in, the communities we belong to - and the way we see ourselves.

I'll be giving away a few copies when I give a talk on the book at SXSW in Austin on March 12th, but it's also available for order on Amazon right now at the above link. Enjoy!

KEXP Cubicle Army
Some of you may be familiar with KEXP. KEXP is a radio station in Seattle, WA, USA that plays a variety of music. They stream their broadcast 24 hours a day. Many people listen to the broadcast at work, some sitting in their cubicles with their headphones on. These people are members of the self-styled Cubicle Army.

I've build a community website for the Cubicle Army members at

If you're interested in the architecture of the site... It is hosted at Dreamhost. The site is powered by the wonderful Drupal CMS engine. I've developed a custom theme (but am still working on the logo). The site integrates with the equally wonderful Gallery2 to provide image galleries.

Memory is Not a Static Medium
Half online portfolio, half web installation piece. The site documents my work in painting, drawing, and animation - all of which deals with the problem of representing memory in visual media. I'm trying to find a way of showing memory that parallels psychological/scientific understanding of memory, but at the same time still feels like memory. Those of you who find artist's websites with experimental interfaces annoying will probably be frustrated, but my intention is not to be obtuse. It's merely an attempt to merge form and content.

This is a music wiki dedicated to finding samples in songs and listing their sources. I hope to make this a large collaborative effort, but at this point, I really need help setting up formatting and structure. I am using mediawiki. If anyone knows anything about mediawiki and would be interested in helping set up this project, I would much appreciate it. I have a few examples up (search for Dr. Dre, Mr. Lif, Beastie Boys to see them). Current Goals: 1) Logo 2) I would like to learn how to put "latest entries" on the front page as well. Please reply to this if you can help. 3) Directory/structure hierarchy (i.e. artists/albums/songs pages, how to automatically set up something like that) 4) Page formatting/standards (templates?) Please reply to this post if you're interested in helping. Thanks.

Designed especially for riders of the Washington DC metro system, Wake Me! DC buttons are an essential part of sleeping on the metro. Tuck your wallet into a safe pocket, secure your purse under your arm, pin a button to your lapel, and nod off secure with the knowledge that you will be awoken at your stop.

faster - a flickr game
Fastr is a game that uses flickr images. It loads ten images that all share a common tag, one by one, and you guess what the tag is. When you guess right, the tag will turn blue. Then you can watch the pictures until the next set begins. The faster you guess, the more points you get. The points are reset every five minutes.

junklog is a web app for logging what books, dvds, music and games you've been into lately. I wanted something that would let me track and rate my media habits that was a bit more flexible and open than Amazon or Metacritic. It does the tagging and RSS feeds and so on. It's still new but pretty usable.
