Skeleton ist eine kleine Sammlung a small collection of well-organized CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone. It's based on a responsive grid, but also provides very basic CSS for typography, buttons, forms and media queries. Go ahead, resize this super basic page to see the grid in action.
Code. While studying computer science, I co-founded a software company called TheCodingMonkeys. We make carefully crafted software for Macs and iOS devices. Our first project was called Hydra – now SubEthaEdit – a text editor that mainstreamed collaborative editing. Not willing to walk around to other desks for pair programming, my laziness was a main motiviation for that application. SubEthaEdit won an Apple Design Award in 2003, like we hoped it would when starting the project. In 2008 I helped to transform Toronto's city hall into a giant pixel display, that played movies, Space Invaders or Tetris. After that I assisted in the creation of the TV production software BoinxTV, a 2009 Apple Design Award winner. In 2010 my company created an iOS adaption of the board game Carcassonne, that earned universal acclaim. We followed up with a second board game called Lost Cities and a game for kids called Chicken Cha Cha Cha. I like Objective-C, Erlang and Python. (Though sometimes I’m overcome by bad habbits and write my tools in Perl.)
Writing. I'm writing for a german feminist pop-culture magazin called »kleinerdrei«. I specialize – like in my blog posts – in articles about video games and nerd culture. I really like to write and I hope to get better at it – in quality and quantity.
Audio. Making radio is one of my passions. I’m part of a tech podcast called »Fanboys«. It’s a mix of news, reviews and recommendations with a listenership of around ten thousand. I’m also part of the podcast »Retrozirkel«, which focuses on retro gaming. It’s basically a book club, but for retro games: Each month there’s an assignment for us and the listeners. Both are german language shows, though… Sorry.
Personal. My nickname on the internet is »map« and I enjoy people calling me that, even in real life. It's pronounced [mʌp] – not [mɛp] – a bit like "pub" with an "m". Those are my initials, and I'm continuing to pretend that my middle name is indeed »Awesome«. My favorite things include Indian Pale Ale, This American Life, Radiolab, baby goats, PBS Idea Channel, Portland, Pandas, the Japanese language, Welcome to Night Vale and the internet.
