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:
- Buying domains and making great sites:
- POSSIBL.info - 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.
- TRAFFI.ca - 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.
If you're not in a reading mood, here is a summary:
