Notable Articles

If you’re here because you want to see stuff I’ve written, rather than random stuff I found on the web, then you’ll probably find this list helpful. Below, grouped by topic, are some articles on this site that might be interesting to you.

Raspberry Pi & Arduino
  • You can read about our birdcam. It’s a poor‐man’s Dropcam. Watches for movement, captures video, uploads it to a Dropbox folder.
  • For some stupid reason, I wrote an eleven‐part series on the arcade cabinet I built. Runs RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 3.
  • At some point I hope to write about the Pi that’s serving as a home automation server.

I have opinions about JavaScript. Here are some things I’ve written about JS in general and Prototype in particular:

The Web
  • An article about Filibusted, a site I built to keep track of which U.S. Senators were the most reliable filibusterers. Won an award from Sunlight Labs.
  • Hypermedia APIs: Part One and Part Two. Exploring some API design decisions we made at Gowalla.
User interface & design

I don’t have any formal design training, but lack of expertise has never stopped me from having opinions.
