Software/Hardware Projects


A work-in-progress to web-enable my fishtank. The Fishapp consists of various sensors to monitor aquarium water quality parameters, lights and servos, etc, to control various parameters of the tank (such as LED moonlighting, fish-feeders, etc), a webcam, and a PHP / MySQL web application to track, graph, and control the fishtank. The Fishapp is open to other users on the internet in a limited form – they can register with the site and manually (or via an API) add their own parameter readings for their fish tanks.

I Heart Heart Cat Cat Map Map App App

A joke Google Maps mashup created to geotag and display photos of my friends all over the world (wearing a particular funny shirt). Built with PHP, MySQL (using spatial datatpe extensions), jQuery, and the Google Maps API.

INPUT Magazine

An upcoming project to be launched with my friend Kate Netzler. The magazine will attempt to live in the space between a trip to a museum and an advanced degree in a subject – i.e. it will offer an entertaining look at a given subject, exploring its implications and connections in a more comprehensive manner than most general-interest features attempt.  I will be designing the look of the site and creating WordPress templates to implement it.
