Projects

Here’s some of the things I’ve done.

Queercon Badges

I’m part of the team that develops and releases annual electronic badges for attendees of Queercon, an annual event for LGBT and ally attendees of the DEFCON conference.

tucv

tucv is my LaTeX package designed to produce résumés and CVs in the style of the University of Tulsa’s Institute for Information Security format. I’m also hacking together a script, which I call tucvtextrender, to turn a tucv résumé into an attractive plain text rendering.

Perry Prop 8 Tweeter

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has a mailing list to distribute real-time updates regarding the appeal of Kristin Perry, et al v. Arnold Schwarzenegger (the prop 8 case). The Perry Prop 8 Tweeter scrapes these emails, caches them, and posts summaries and links to Twitter. With the conclusion of Hollingsworth v. Perry, this is also concluded.

GSM Scale

This project stalled a couple years ago and likely isn’t going to be coming back, but it’s still included here for archival purposes. This project to build a GSM-enabled scale suitable for medical research and treatment was is part of a collaboration with Alex Barclay and Dr. Kevin Hall of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at NIH. The immediate goal is to allow reliable remote collection of nutrition study subjects’ weights, avoiding the costly requirement of having study staff weigh subjects any time a reading must be made.
