Seed Balls at Digg

Giving it a try

I've never used RSS feed. I suppose that puts me way behind the times. I've put my Seed-balls.com feed up on DIgg. You can see it here: Seed-balls feed.

Seed-balls.com

Another enterprise that I am particularly excited about. I wanted to build an environmentally sound business that would have little overhead and potential for growth and use of entry-level labor. High school kids and folks with disabilities.

The website design was built with ExpressionEngine Core by me, and designed to be fun and informative.

State College Weblab

My new web design & development site
The new web design features HTML5 and CSS3 animations and effects.

I'm very excited about this design. I used HTML5, and CSS3 to do some animate some Victorian era drawings creating a stylistic  mash up of quaint home-town and SteamPunk for this site. I want so badly to reah the local market and most of the other developers in the State College area have very generic and corporate looking sites. Not certain who they are appealing to, maybe only big jobs, but I like working with the quick smaller gigs so that I can be creative designs and support the underdogs of the business world.

Check it out. With the animations, IE kind of flops, Chrome and Safari do great, and Firefox will do fine if your cache isn't too full.

My Blog in Norwegian

My first WordPress excursion

Here's my first effort using wordPress. I hope the Expression Engine and MojoMotor gods don't strike me down for saying that I am much impressed. The blog is bilingual (English-Norwegian). I use it to blog about my efforts to learn the Norwegian language. It's evolving into a kind of diary in proto norsk.

I use a number of plugins on the site and the theme is pretty much an unaltered version of Neuro. I did tweak the php so that the big gallery-banner only shows up on the home page since it takes up so much real estate.

State College Area Municipal Band

A new website for my band!
The Band's new website

I was accepted into the State College Area Municipal Band this fall, where I play in the trumpet section. The section has some really outstanding players, so I am learning a great deal and they keep me on my toes.

I developed the page as a kind of 'thank you' to the band.

Paleontology Web Hub

Bringing International Paleontologists together online
NeotomaSB.org website

www.neotomadb.org is a webhub for paleontologists all around the world. I built the website using Experssion engine and designed the appearance of it with contributions from people at Center for Environmental Informatics, like Brian Bills, who has powerful intuition about the presentation of complex information.  I did spot illustrations, as well as the Html5, css3 and occasional scripting.

The featured Neotoma Explorer tool can help scientists, hobbiests, and s tudents sort through thousands of data and was built by Mike Anderson and Brian Bills using Adove Flex.

The site is seeing rapidly increasing traffic and is slated to recieve continued NSF funding for the next 4 years.
