Here is another StoryMap, featuring journal entries from the 3 1/2 days it took me to get to California from Washington DC on an open-ended Greyhound bus trip I took around the USA in 1993.
I rode from coast to coast and back in 11 days, these are dispatches from the 1st 1/2 of that trip.

Designed to make my friends laugh, this game is meant to drive the player crazy. So far I can sometimes score as high as 900, but no higher - can you do better?

Five Points (or The Five Points) was a 19th-century neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It gained international notoriety as a densely populated, disease-ridden, crime-infested slum that existed for well over 70 years.
I'd been reading a history book about the Five Points and found a woodcut of a notorious intersection. I cleaned and up-sampled it in Photoshop, and used VIPs to create the image tile pyramid for the OpenSeaDragon library.
A nice piece of history and art and open-source software.

This interactive map shows where people of specific surnames lived in Ireland in the 19th century, according to parish records. I scraped a static dataset from the Irish Times website, and built a much more interesting way to view the same information, with additional insights provided by clustering of semi-opaque colored markers. The dataset has 4 pieces of information: latitude, longitude, name of parish and number of family surnames in that parish.

I used a collection of old maps of Washington DC for this Rubiks Cube code experiment from Google Chrome Labs. It would seem to make the game exponentially harder, especially if one does not know old Washington DC.

A big part of teaching emergent communication (and programming) to college design majors is getting the students comfortable with the new paradigm that virtually all future design will be executed by code. They have to learn basic programming skills at the very least to be competitive. These screenshots are from work I designed and executed for class lectures toward that end: I took print ads, album covers and book covers and reproduced them with HTML5, jQuery and CSS3. Then the students created their own fully-coded versions, recycling dying media into future-proof solutions.
