Recipe: Apple Fritters

Found at Goodwill: WebPad 1001 Prototype
I found this strange looking device at Goodwill yesterday. Originally, owing perhaps to the bright blue color, I thought it was some sort of educational or kids device. It had no branding on it, so overall, something of a mystery. At first, it didn’t even have the button membranes installed, just exposed raw button switches,…
My Doorbell Runs Swift – iOSDevCampDC 2017
I just gave a talk at iOSDevCampDC 2017 about building an Internet of Things bridge in Swift on a Raspberry Pi. Here’s the deck on SpeakerDeck, and I also exported the slides with my notes into a PDF: Slides on SpeakerDeck Download Slides with Notes (PDF) Also, here’s my demo video: My Doorbell Runs Swift…
Setting up a Raspberry Pi for Swifty IoT
I recently gave a talk on implementing an Internet of Things bridge in Swift using a Raspberry Pi. If you’re interested in following in my footsteps, here’s a quick abridged guide on how to set up your Pi. Many smart people have done the heavy lifting here, I’ve just put the building blocks together. Where…

First up, a little background about me: I studied computer science at NYU for three years, then I transferred to Stevens to pursue mechanical engineering for another two. It’s all part of a dual-degree program between both schools that essentially allowed NYU to appeal to engineers while having no engineering department or school whatsoever (at least…
It’s in the Data: TRANSient Beta.
My text editor doesn’t spoil many secrets, its title bar simply glows “stop_times.txt – nycsubway”. Below that, lines of gibberish seem to cascade downward endlessly, patterns coyly exposing themselves in streaks of data as I scroll down violently. In one file hides every single stop, made by every single train, running along every single route…
Aesthetic Design Algorithm for Public Transit Information Diagrams, ADAPTiD for short. As of yet, it’s just a dinky line simplifier that has been fed data from NYC’s PATH rail system, which connects Manhattan with points west across the Hudson. Yes, giving such a project an acronym already is perhaps akin to publishing my work on…
