Other Projects

So for the past couple of months I'd been telling myself that I was going to write an application (my first attempt at this) for my chosen smart phone platform, Palm's webOS. There are a couple reasons why I wanted to do this. First, just to see if I could do it. I'd never written an application before, though I've been tempted more and more lately. Second, because although there are over 350 apps in Palm's store I'd have to say half of them are crap. And before you Apple iPhone fanboys start gloating, I remember what the App Store looked like at the beginning... a bunch of crappy apps. So I've decided to (hopefully) not make a crappy app. This app will handle BART's schedule. If you have ideas for names or logos I'd love to hear them. I chose webOS because it draws on web standards to build an app, standards I'm familiar with.

The other project that I've been batting around is a gadget (Google's term for an app) for Google Wave. This on…

Why Do I Even Have A Website

I was asking myself this question last night as I was talking to a friend about what I do. I basically spend all day working on other people's websites, figuring out how to integrate a feature into their site, or how to make something that they have thought out in non-programmer language to work on their sites. I enjoy my work, taking a client's idea and making it become real, in a digital world.
