Another Thing I Made: WorldWildlife.org

Posted 2 February 2013 under , ,

Last year, I had the priviledge of working with a talented team at Viget to build and launch a new site for the North American branch of the World Wildlife Fund:

This was the first major project at Viget for which I served as technical lead from start to finish. I’m very proud of the way it turned out, particularly the custom content management system we built and the photo management tools. I wrote a few posts on our company tech blog if you’d like to read more:

Using Vim for writing Prose

Vim is a great text editor for writing code. Anyone who claims otherwise is either an Emacs user (and you should be OK with that, because Emacs is pretty neat) or a “casual” code wrangler who sometimes dabbles in programming but knows very little of it. You can recognize these guys because of the persistent Dunning–Kruger aura effect that surrounds them (+10 to Smug Ignorance). The smart people know that if you are writing code, you should be writing it in Vim (or maybe in Emacs if you were born with extra fingers on each hand). What about prose though?

I love writing about Kiss. I love it too much, probably. I’ve written about this band semiconstantly for the past 20 years, sometimes for reasons that weren’t justified and sporadically with motives that weren’t justified and intermittently with logic that wasn’t justified. But Kiss go into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow, so today I’m Timothy Olyphant.
