“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need …

On Point!”

The amazing Jamie wrote a post about SEO. You can find it here!

This is my Drupal Detector. It Goes Ding When There’s Stuff.

Super Cool Drupal Module: Pop-up Question Redirect

Sometimes I am able to write something clever about a thing. This is not one of those times. It’s a module that allows pop-up question redirects. Pop-Up Goes the Redirect. Oh wait, I guess I did have something clever.


Dries Buytaert discusses inversion of control, and how Drupal user experience could be bettered because of it. Awesome.

I’m a Programmer. Programmers are Cool.

The Pain! The Pain!

Some things are easy, like understanding why you shouldn’t wear socks with sandals. And some things are painfully difficult, like explaining that you are traveling through time and space in a police call box that is larger on the inside. Oh, and learning Angular 2.

Keep an Ion It

Sometimes you want to build cross platform Electron apps. Other times, you want to eat crullers from Lil’s, drink too much Mountain Dew, and spend the afternoon being the poster child for why you shouldn’t combine sugar and caffeine. I can’t help you with the latter, but I can with the former. Build those apps!

Bear With Me

Say hello to Hibernate. And then have a big meal, and maybe take a nap for the entire winter.

Always Take a Designer to a Party

I Haz a Happy

Look at your computer. Now look at me. I am NOT your computer, though you are reading me on your computer’s screen. That’s weird, but also interesting. I might say something funny. You like things that are funny. Funny things make you happy. You know what else makes you happy? Exploiting emotions to make web design more impactful. Look, now we’re all happy.

The Fast and The Furious

Ever get off the highway, tooling along at a perfectly legal 75 mph, and then feel like you’re crawling down back roads only to find that you’re still going 50? (And … ooops! The speed limit is actually 30? AWESOME.) PERCEPTION. It is messing with you. Here’s how the psychology of speed perception impacts user experience.

The Thumb Zone

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space … well, no, actually, it’s fairly small and it fits on your mobile devices and it’s what makes you decide if an app is awesome or the work of Satan himself.

It is an area which we call… the Thumb Zone.

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Gadgets

Tick Tock Goes the Clock

The Glance Clock might not actually tick. But it does a bunch of other really cool stuff. (Insert your favorite Time Lord joke here.)

Droning On and On

GoPro’s Karma drone is apparently super easy to use… and, um, crash. Not awesome.

Get Organized, You Will

I love this so much that I can’t even. It’s like they’re using The Force to take my money.

In Other News

It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane…

…It’s an amazing superhero and it’s not in a movie but a book! READ ALL THE BOOKS! (Reading is a superpower of its own, you know …)

Mother of DragonCon

Why is all of the best cosplay in Atlanta? Is Georgia secretly super geektastic? Is there something in the peaches there? I don’t know, but it’s fantastic. Check it out.

Virus Detected

John McAfee is a very, very odd dude and also the subject of a new documentary that is … well. You should probably decide for yourself.
