I build custom, dynamic websites. Here are some samples, using css and jQuery.
A methodology for designing and building things.
A recipe for solving problems.
The Electronic Campus, Berkeley is an open-source,
online school. I run the Computer
where I strive to teach the design and implementation of systems which
are used to enhance personal and social expressions and needs, and to
the socialization of students into the open source community and
exposure to its ideals. Check out our coursework examples on ecBerkeley's Sourceforge project
An application framework for building dynamic web
functions like Tapestry or Struts, and allows a
developer to build a web app with just text files: XML for pages and
widgets, and Beanshell script for server-side events. The server
supports lots of introspection and debugging, which are usually absent
in web application frameworks. Active development is on Sourceforge: dynamide.sourceforge.net

sharing, and relating.
Tagland is a framework for organizing information on
shared, hierarchical tags, similar to a taxonomy, called a tagonomoy.
Along the way the system includes a command-line menuing system, and a
plug-n-play PropertyPage editor similar to what you get in Visual Basic
or eclipse for property sheet editing for any Java Object using Java
introspection. It's open source, so you can use and extend the
PropertyPage model for your needs, or contribute to the work. See the In through the diorama
blog for more discussion about the motivations and design ideas.
My blog about futurism and inventions.
My most recent gig was Sr. Java Developer working for
U.C. Berkeley on the CollectionSpace project, in collaboration with the
Museum of the Moving Image
where we are creating an Open Source, web-service-based museum and
archive collections management system. This work supports 10
collections on the Berkeley campus, and many other systems with our
consortium of universities and museums. The system also enables tiny
museums an open source route for fullfiling the requirements for
becoming an accredited museum.
