I don't like writing my own bio. So, I've been kicking around that too-clever thing above for the last decade or so. Seems like it's been a stable description, if you don't mind reading curly braces.
Tinkering with data & code is something I like much better than writing a bio. So, the rest of this page is a collection of my personal data exhaust and featured projects.
Project: Twitch Streaming
Lately, I've been thinking I should start trying to get out of my head more and share what I do via streaming on Twitch.

@sstrudeau Well, with Portals since React 16, you could make one component that renders pieces of itself into multiple existing DOM elements - i.e. rather than say multiple components for multiple spots or one component taking over the whole page

@tedmielczarek Yeah, it's just I hadn't done any of that before, on a night I had other things do to, expecting someone else was taking my money to do it. Ended up not too hard, but just a surprise. The heavy lifting was at least done though.
Oh, and also: We discovered that for some reason the last 4" of "dryer hose" connecting to the outside vent was made of packing tape shaped into a tube. :)

Also had a weird idea about using React as a progressive enhancement by limiting it to using portals to manage only a few select bits of an otherwise static or server-generated page. Someone has to have already played with that.

- 1 week agoHelp Us Bring Back the Creative Web! – Glitch – MediumShow us how you got started building the web. Bring back your first web projects and share them with the world. It’s easy to forget in this era of billion-dollar Internet startups, that many people got started on the web by learning to tweak HTML creating a GeoCities page, or fiddling with CSS to perfect their MySpace profile. Back then, people were almost as likely to make a web page as to read one — it was a rite of passage growing up. Now though, things are a little different. Many modern websites all look the same, and people spend most of their time online using just three apps. So it seems more important than ever to remind ourselves that the web is still a thing we all make, not just something we consume. We know the good, fun internet is still out there. Help us bring back the creative web and show everyone how you got started building the web. Bring back your first web projects and share them with the world, and help encourage a diverse community of creators to experiment with their broadest set of ideas. Bring Your First Site Back To Life To help you out, we’ve created the Wayback Importer. An easy way for you to grab your first website from archive.org and bring it back to life on Glitch. It’s complete with an authentic early-web design of course — check out that cursor animation! And we’re showcasing peoples’ first websites in a collection, alongside some classic layouts from sites like LiveJournal, Neopets, Movable Type and many other old-school ways of publishing a web page. If you were on the Internet back then, or are just curious about web history, you should check it out, and remix some sites to make your own new classic. If you do make a page, let us know by sharing it on social media. We can’t wait to see what you create❣️ Help Us Bring Back the Creative Web! was originally published in Glitch on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
- 1 week agoCreate Your Own ESP8266 Shields | HackadayThe ESP8266 has become incredibly popular in a relatively short time, and it’s no wonder. Cheap as dirt, impressively powerful, Arduino-compatible, and best of all, includes Wi-Fi right out of the box. But for all its capability and popularity, it’s still lagging behind the Arduino in at least one respect. Namely, the vast collection of add-on “Shields” which plug into the Arduino to add everything from breadboards to GPS receivers. Until such time as the free market decides to pick up the pace and start making standardized shields for the various ESP8266 development boards, it looks as if hackers are going to have to pick up the slack. [Rui Santos] has put together a very detailed step-by-step guide on the creation of a simple shield for the popular Wemos D1 Mini board, which should give you plenty of inspiration for spinning up your own custom add-on modules. Presented as a written tutorial as well as a two part video, this guide covers everything from developing and testing your circuit on a breadboard to designing your PCB in KiCad and sending it off for fabrication. The end result is a professional looking PCB that matches the footprint of the stock D1 Mini and adds a DS18B20 temperature sensor, PIR motion detector, photoresistor, and some screw down terminals. [Rui] goes on to show how you can utilize the new sensors shield via a web interface hosted on the ESP8266, and even wraps the whole thing up in a 3D printed enclosure. All worthwhile skills to check out if you’re looking to produce more cohesive finished products. If you’re looking for a similar project for the ESP32, [Rui] has you covered there as well. You may also be interested in the series of ESP8266 tutorials we recently highlighted.
