  • I am a photographer & designer from Portland, Oregon.
    I created Muxtape. Before that I worked at Vimeo.
    I am JSTN on Tumblr and chromogenic on Flickr.
    I live in Chinatown, New York City.

    What I’ve been up to lately:

  • Facebook is planning to exploit the vast amount of personal information it holds on its 150m members by creating one of the world's largest market research databases.
  • Obama popularity stat, up to date.
  • Welcome to a preview of the new Muxtape, a minimalist platform for bands to promote their music and listeners to create mixes. We’ve invited 12 of our favorite artists to help test, and in the coming weeks we'll begin allowing bands to sign up themselves for free.

  • phpFlickr is a class written by Dan Coulter in PHP (compatible with PHP4 and PHP5) to act as a wrapper for Flickr's API. Methods process the response and return a friendly array of data to make development simple and intuitive.

  • The Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction, CAVI, is a part of the University of Aarhus with activities within the fields of architecture, design, scientific visualization, art and culture. CAVI's facilities are used for teaching and research and for projects with companies and institutions outside the university.
  • Cabspotting traces San Francisco's taxi cabs as they travel throughout the Bay Area. The patterns traced by each cab create a living and always-changing map of city life. This map hints at economic, social, and cultural trends that are otherwise invisible. The Exploratorium has invited artists and researchers to use this information to reveal these "Invisible Dynamics."
  • The maps on this page show one way of answering that question. Using colours and contour lines they show how long it takes to travel between one particular place and every other place in the area, using public transport. They also show the areas from which no such journey is possible, because the services are not good enough.
  • Since 2001, Stamen has developed a reputation for beautiful and technologically sophisticated projects in a diverse range of commercial and cultural settings.
