The Ressurection!

Nov1908Nov 19, 08

I am not usually one to let sites drift into the abyss of the forgotten corner of the web. I think every site that had effort put into it and receives visitors deserves at least a few link-backs and the occasional re-touching. That said, there are a few sites that I created in the early days of developIT / Jason Miller Design where the situation had reached such a lonely state.

I've been spending about 90% of my time adding features to the soon-to-be-released amoebaOS, in particular I have been programming the core applications that comprise the basic Operating System interface functionality. Having added advanced drag & drop support, performance improvements and more special effects for the dock, and adding podcast & streaming audio support to Exstream Media Center. The other 10% of my time was used for two things:

  1. Buying domains and making great sites:
    • - This one is already started, and I intend to finish it as soon as humanly possible. I am developing Possibl  to serve as a community for people who want to crowd source ideas and push the boundaries of their careers, lives, and hobbies. Encouraging thoughtful discussion and criticism amongst a group of people with new ideas will help members think in new and exciting ways about the things that interest them. I am very excited about this project and I intend to use it myself when developing new products and applications.
    • - As the website currently states, I have come to the blunt realization that there are no effective tracking and analysis systems for Web 2.0 / AJAX applications! I know there is a place for such a system on a few of the products I am developing, and it no system exist - I will create one. The format will be similar to Google Analytics, but will feature real time statistics and it will give developers the ability to easily add analysis marker points to their applications either using current AJAX history techniques or by a more transparent method. I also have a great color scheme planned for the dashboard and overall theme of Traffica. I might add, I did not consider any other names - I though of Traffica, subsequently realized it could make use of the .CA domain extension (I am Canadian anyway), and began working on the prototype.
    • - Finally, my exact name will be my website. It won't be replacing Jason Miller Design, because I think this name is quite appropriate considering the nature of my interests and the content I have published on this site. Instead, will be my personal blog, which frees up some space on Jason Miller Design for more JavaScript articles and tutorials, as well as a new section devoted to User Interface (UI) design. Also, is the 40th website I will have produced.
  2. Working on JMDWiki. There's not actually that much to dive into publicly, but I will say that I'm glad I finally revisited certain older sections of the code. After a much needed tune-up, JMDWiki 2 will be getting a massive update, which will include a brand new Control Panel, photo gallery (more on dGallery later), and the newest version of the CommunitY Forum.

But, in the midst of that barrage of projects and deadlines, I managed to find some time to help an old friend back to it's spot the web. Cellnotes was the first website I ever created. It began in 2003 while I was on a high school internship. I had no idea what Cellnotes was supposed to be, so it became what all directionless websites become - social File & document storage, a few types of chat and a strange JavaScript "screen saver" script I wrote. Anyway, Cellnotes is back, and I even made some improvements to the browser and menus. Keep in mind, it's difficult to work on Cellnotes, because it is nowhere near as powerful as the new Online Operating System I am developing, amoebaOS. Have a look, let me know what you think in the comments.

If you're not in a reading mood, here is a summary:

Expect a ton of activity at developIT,
in particular the News & Updates section.

About Jason Miller:

I am a JavaScript developer from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. When I am not typing green code onto a black screen, you might find me at the nearest coffee pub checking out the brew. I run a internet firm called developIT and maintain blogs and web apps when I can.
