Dismantling Dictators

Resources for those concerned with the direciton of their country’s leadership and are looking for non-violent methods and tactics towards overthrowing them. A way to turn anger and frustration into active, productive resistance.

🔥 Practice Tool for Ignite Presentations

Source-code for the simple tool I made to help practice pacing for my talk at Ignite Portland 13.

📌 jekyll-pinboard gem

A Ruby-gem for integrating your Pinboard bookmarks with your Jekyll blog.

👾 Kiku

An adaptation of the card game Hanabi inspired by SETI and submitted as an entry for 10k Apart.

Mount Hood Community College Code Academy

I worked with Mount Hood Community College to run a pilot program that focused on teaching unemployed and underemployed people coding skills. The hope was to help people considering a career change and to get under-represented communities more involved in the industry.

Penny Thoughts

I paid literal pennies online to ask people what was on their mind many years ago. You can peruse and search through the collection here.

Inky Shadows

My guitar + bass duo playing make-believe jazz with tinges of acoustic noir. Whatever that means :)

Roma Guitar Picks

I make (And use!) my own guitar picks and sell them online. They’re particularly well-suited for gypsy-jazz and bluegrass styles, but anyone who enjoys aggressive picking on acoustic instruments will likely appreciate them. 

Jekyll RSS Feeds

A popular GitHub repository I started that quickly and easily adds an RSS feed to your Jekyll blog. Looking at the commit history of the main Jekyll repo I think this actually got integrated there at some point. Jekyll now handles RSS feeds out of the box in the exact same way my repo does, but I wasn’t involved in that.

Konami JS

Another popular GitHub repository I created for adding a silly easter-egg to your website based on the Konami Code.

Ads-on-Bikes and Pedal Driven

Bicycle-centric projects and ideas. I also recently started making contributons to the code that runs the SHIFT to bike event calendar.
