I helped a friend build a site all about travel and food. I did it faster and more efficiently than the full time professionals that she had hired previously. How? It's all about process, commitment, and execution. I'll give my example thoughts and tools in this post.
Real-time, async, distributed data...from your Nike+ running app? Yes indeed! This post is actually just a proof of concept (for me) that I can build a fun AR app - but don't let that stop you. Firebase, Leaflet, and some root privileges all mix together in a nice and easy application.

Smart houses (that fail), smart dams (!!) that are accessible. Why are we clamoring to get more data, faster - why can't we just concentrate on getting good data now - and worry about the optimization later? Cross-posted on LinkedIn
It's Christmas Time! Which means it's time to send (and receive) a lot of Christmas cards. Like taxes, this is something that I think about getting prepared for about 1 week before required by law (family or federal). This year I did something different, and it involved OCR and my phone.
This is a simple project where you use your head (literally) to move around a real web camera somewhere else in the world. If you have nothing at all (not even a phone) you can get up and running for $80. Take a look and take a spin!
