Silicon Valley (California) / Toronto (Ontario)
I'm shazow on…
where I reinvent your wheels in less code.
where I keep refreshing to check for new features.
where I try to be funny.
where I'm reminded about how old I am.
You should try some things I've built recently like…
· Remove the pain of using Google Analytics with weekly email summaries.
· Color blending tool so you don't have to open Photoshop to overlay or multiply a couple of colours.
· Static site generator in Python powering this very site.
· Prototype for building self-recompiling Go binaries.
· Arcade-style game where you're a line and you try not to hit stuff.
· Chat over SSH.
· Twitter analytics tool that tracks changes in your social graph.
· Intersect your Twitter social graph to uncover your stalkers.
· Collection of highly reusable Python code.
· Python HTTP library with thread-safe connection pooling.
· Find available domains with friends.
