Metafilter Leaderboard
I've been playing around with this API that I was making for kind of a joke Metafilter-filter extension (I have since shelved the filterer). Since I'm not planning on finishing Metafilter-filter, I wanted to still do something with the API, so I've hooked it up to this website!

An Impractical Key Cabinet
My first automaton! A clockwork cabinet built mostly for fun and whimsy, but I thought it would be nice to make it slightly practical as well.

Dan Fuehring Lives On
In October 2015, my father and frequent Metafilter contributor Dan Fuehring (better known as Danf) died of cancer. One of his (many) great loves in life was music. You may remember him posting some of his compositions on Mefi Music. I have finally finished cataloguing, publishing and creating an online archive of his music recordings.

Experience Vermont as a local, through interviews and tours
We want to introduce folks to the amazing artists and craftspeople that call Vermont home, and I’ve been interviewing them in a new YouTube series. I (and sometimes terrapin) also share a weekly tip or recipe from our own craft hobbies, primarily brewing, cooking, knitting, and dyeing. This week’s videos feature an interview with MeFi’s own Jessamyn West, and her tutorial on making your own mossarium.

I made a Blockchain
Cryptocurrency is our future, there's no doubt about it. So I set out to make my own Blockchain, which required mining some coin, which I call JimCoin™. Some smart people invested early and before long the chain was growing.

Box breathing box
I wanted a device for box breathing, the technique where you breath in/hold/out/hold for 4 seconds. A device that wasn't a phone or computer. I built one, out of wood, plexiglas, metal, transistors, and a tiny bit of code. Then gave it the photo studio treatment, shared the code, and wrote about the experience.

I felt like I should build a little web resource for the big day, and so: inaugurationlivestream.com.

Two Asians talk about all of this shit.
Race Invaders is a podcast hosted by myself and my friend Tim Yang, in which we discuss social justice, politics, culture, and probably more geek shit than is necessary, but we like it.

xn--qeiaa.ws: Emoji Domain Registration
Domains can be more than just letters and numbers. Most people have no idea they can just type a bunch of hearts in their address bar and go to a domain... and yet, it works!

The Corey Press
I've just completed a major revamp of my website, The Corey Press, where I keep all my weird wooden blockprints. Need some medieval alien abductions? Done! Old school Pokemon battles? Sure! More Cthulhu Mythos than you can shake a stick at? You betcha. I'm really proud of my newest piece, a Mothman-inspired ouija board.

confirmshaming
when a site asks you to sign up for their thing and then the 'no thank you' link is some hot garbage.
