Past projects

In the past I’ve also contributed to Edit Flow, created a WordPress-powered Twitter archive, and made WordPress act like a Daring Fireball-style linkblog. In college my favorite non-code project involved petitioning the Politics department at Whitman College to allow a web-only senior thesis.
