Repurposing code

Gina Trapani built the ly detector, a bookmarklet which highlights adverbs on a page, basing the highlighting code on my searchhi and some work by Paul Ford. Paul then reborrowed the code for the Passivator, which flags adverbs and passive verbs. Seeing something I built get used in a totally different context like this is dead cool.


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
