analog awesomeness

Cate’s grandma (stick w/ me here) dropped by yesterday to see the baby. She is always peddling some kind of garage sale find that we usually turn down or accept b/c we don’t want to hurt her feelings. Finally a payoff!!! As I walked to the back of her caddy, to inspect her latest find […]

Building a Dashboard Widget

November 12th, 2007 · No Comments · Code, Concept

Widgetry – luscious little morsels of UI and development. I’ve starting thinking about developing my first Dashboard Widget. I spent the weekend taking a look at Apples Xcode….whoa. I don’t think I’m ready to jump into all of that COCA action. But after further research a Dashboard Widget seems to be a pretty simple creature. […]

twitter face

November 5th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Code, Concept, Digital Process

I recently downloaded the twitter Actionscript API. I’m thinking about developing some kind of absolutely worthless flash widget that would display my “tweets” with some kind of tween and/or humorous staging. I first thought of some kind of puppetry. Plugging into web services and APIs is some fun stuff. I’ve done some tinkering with google […]

A semi-distant relative recently contacted me about one of my domains, heberlie.com. He said he’d always envisioned it being some kind of family history resource. I’ve always been curious about my family history. I received an interesting document about the name history and derivation of the heberlie name. I’m considering a flash family tree visualization […]

zombie game

October 16th, 2007 · 11 Comments · Concept

This is a project I’ve been wanting to tackle for a long time. My friends and I frequently discuss creating an online zombie multi-player game. Our ideas are grandiose, but for this to succeed it would obviously need more definition and possibly a scaled down phase 1. Here is what I’m proposing for a possible […]

zen critters in ink

Behold the sick sick sick skills of Zach Johnsen. I came across Zach’s work a while ago on Drawn. He inspired me. I grew up in a small town. And in that small town my Grandpa owned some land on a creek. I spent many hours in the creek as a boy. Because of this […]

Pong Position Prototype

October 15th, 2007 · No Comments · Concept

At work we have a ping-pong table. A lot of smack-talk has been goin’ on, and my forehand is becoming a force to be reckoned with. The dev team at Touchwood has been toying around w/ the idea of creating a ping-pong ranking system for some time now. Whether my version cross-pollinates with the Touchwood […]
