Itinerate Surfer
Itinerate Surfer is basically a collection of things I've trolled up while delving into the depths of the internet. I have around 140 posts now, so you can lose yourself here for a couple of hours, or at least i hope you can. I try to avoid editorializing, although I will admit to having fallen prey to it at least once or twice.

Words That Sound Dirty But Aren't (the song)

Sharing WiFi via Gmaps
I've been wanting to learn the Google Maps API for a while, so I built this site. It connects people willing to share/barter their WiFi networks with their neighbors and others who can 'see' that network. Lots of people already do this on an ad-hoc level, but in high-density 'hoods like mine it's hard to match an AP to an owner.

Clusty's Ben Franklin Portal
Just in time for the tercentenary (Ben turns 300 on Jan. 17, as previously discussed), Clusty's launched the Ben Franklin portal. We crawled his writings, and we're using a specialized metasearch. Try searching for something like "liberty" for extra neat-o proverb and timeline keymathces. (I'm an employee at Vivisimo, so I got to do all the graphics for this, but I was hardly alone.)

Seed Media Group has just launched ScienceBlogs, a network of science-minded bloggers. They've been able to collect an impressive initial pool of 14 popular bloggers, including PZ Myers and Chris Mooney. My partner and I designed and built the site for them (another Movable Type-based site, like, and I wrote a little more about it here.

Everyday Hogwash Collaboration
All those little irritating ways that companies stick it to us are a mainstay of blogging and stand-up comedy. In Everyday Hogwash, we'll try to turn that into a kind of game for the blogsphere: a three-month collaborative/competitive blogging conversation, with daily prizes and a juried grand-prize. Like most collaborative projects, it would be better with submissions from your blog.

Console colors & limited editions
I'm endeavoring to list all video game console colors, redesigns, and limited editions. The project came about when I was in the market for a GBA SP and would think I wanted one limited edition, only to find a new one a few days later that I wanted more.

Y!Q Link Generator
This is a simple form for creating Y!Q links as seen here in the Y!Q Beta for Publishers documentation. Y!Q allows users to search "at the point of inspiration". It's also a great way to add relevance, annotate text, and provide more sophisticated layers of meaning to web content. The problem is that making Y!Q links by hand can be really complicated. The Y!Q Link Generator makes it easy. More examples of what you can do w/ Y!Q here.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the follow up to this Ask Metafilter question from nine months ago (the original question was deleted, link goes to archival photo of the thread). Announcing the latest generation of Jonson!! This release features no Y chromosome, but is highly feature rich in terms of adorableness & comes factory loaded with good baby smell.

Install an iPod in a Scion XB
This is a pretty lame project in that it's only relevant to people with the same car as me who want to hook up an iPod to it. But I couldn't find very good resources on the net when I got started, so I kept notes and took pictures along the way and put this together.

Animatronic Santa Hack
Combine an animatronic Santa Claus from Wal-Mart, a BASIC Stamp, and a wry sense of humor, and you've got a hack for the holidays. An drunken holiday Santa with a less-than-cheerful Christmas message for young and old.

Hacking the New Furbie
Part 1 - Skinning, I bought a New Furbie after reading about the super cool chip that powers it, the RSC-4128 and then I took it apart and took pictures along with writing up what I did. The next step is to wait for the Sensory Inc developers kit to come in the mail and add some switches and LEDs. Toys have come a long way!

Gulch Guides for the Good Life
After doing some extended traveling and finding out that we enjoyed reading guidebooks, my partner and I decided to use our bad spelling and basic typepad skills to create our own online guide to some of our favorite places. Somewhat limited but always expanding, our guide currently covers Portland, OR, Victoria, BC, the Mayan Rivera, and Helena, MT.

Announcing Medslist!
Medslist is a website I've developed to allow people to enter their medications online, print out a wallet-sized PDF list of them, and save them (if they like) for future updates. It encourages people to understand at least the basics of their medications--why they're taking them, which many cannot answer--and also provides the ability to enter any vitamins, herbals, or supplements people take regularly.
Many patients, often on 10-20 medications, will come to clinic without a list and it's a frustrating experience. It's also a waste of time that could be better spent on patient education, prevention, and screening. Please check it out, use it, and give me all the suggestions and constructive criticism you can muster. Thanks!

RightFields plugin for Movable Type
If you use Movable Type for anything beyond standard out-of-the-box blogging, chances are you've felt the need for more fields for your entries, or are using at least one field for something other than what it's called—you have to remember that the "Excerpt" field actually holds an event date in one weblog and a filename in another. With RightFields you can change the label and input type of the standard text entry fields, and add as many extra fields as you want, on a per-weblog basis. Any field can be text, a checkbox, a menu, a set of radio buttons, a date (with Y/M/D select menus), a file (with an upload field), or a linked entry from another weblog. Shareware. Now in beta—please bang on it.
