Amazing idea for iPad owners! A touchscreen cover that simulates keyboard typing, allowing you to touch type without having to look at the screen.

Kickstarter is kicking CES's ass.

I will write about why shortly but http://touchfire.com is more useful than 99.999% of the gadgets I have seen and it was funded by Kickstarter and isn't part of CES. This makes it possible to touch type on on iPad.

It ships at the end of February. $44.95. I just ordered one. Steven Isaac, CEO, is showing it to me.

Kickstarter is a new way guys like Steven can get funded. http://www.kickstarter.com/ Steven got $200,000 from individual investors.

What will your next TV, monitor or smartphone have as the screen technology?

Rackspace server just went down. Guess it's going to be one of those days!

Amazing graphic library. If you're looking for a good library for graphing in your next project, check out Rickshaw.

For a majority of my projects, I've been using Highcharts. Only downside so far with using rickshaw is they don't have pie charts, which is a must for the project I'm currently on.

Just want everyone to know who has me circled, I'm not 100% inactive. Rather, I've been working extremely hard on this current project with tight deadlines. Excuse the silence and I'll be back soon!

After reading all of these amazing science articles on the fabric of space and space-time, I wonder if, in the future, maps of space for spaceships will have to be dynamically altered as their mass or velocity changes. In this way, a ship traveling at near light speeds would have a different map than a ship traveling at slower sub-light speeds. Likewise, a ship with an extremely large mass would need to take a different route than a ship with a small mass.

The data points would have to interact and vary depending on the speed, mass and probably other variables the ship has.

Pretty interesting to think about!

Amazing art. Painted layer by layer, and no fish are harmed in the process.

... Weird.

I've had the new +Google+ top bar for weeks now and today it suddenly reverted back to the old black bar.

Wonder what caused that? Anyone else experience this issue?

I've only ever had the black bar. In fact now it stays at the top of the screen which I like (used to scroll up with the page).

Thinking of using this credit card processor for a future project. Anyone ever use it before?
Stripe makes it easy for developers to accept credit cards on the web.

Sr. Software Engineer
Introduction
I love code. There is something inherently pleasing to see something you've build be used by hundreds or thousands of people.

I started out doing front-end development and quickly moved to learning middle and back-end development.

After several years of doing small projects here and there I decided to take the plunge into freelance web development and have been doing that for approximately 10 years.
Bragging rights
I have been a moderately successful freelance developer as my main source of income for most of my adult life. It's been tough at times, but I've seen it through to a successful business.
