FriendFeed aggregates all of my digital content into a single stream.
I've got an ever-growing collection of tattoos, most designed by my buddy Kevin Lytle of Eternal Tattoo (Livonia, MI) and inspired by my love of comics books. A catalog of my tattoos and their inspirations can be found at my Flickr account, the front door of which lives here:http://tattoo.briandillard.com/
Personal Contact Information
I'm a web developer and writer living in Chicago.
I've been writing online since the early '90s. My music site, Armchair DJ, has been dormant for a long time but I'm slowly coming around the the idea of relaunching it. I've contributed hundreds of movie reviews to the All Movie Guide. During a previous gig at a Chicago-based software shop, I blogged about user-interface development several times a week at Agile Ajax.
As the headline says, I'm a big fan of both tattoos and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer." I'm also a cycling enthusiast and a vegan, but I try not to be annoying about either.
This site is my writing, programming and social-media playground. It's a place to aggregate content by and about me. More importantly, it's a place try out new technologies. As such, it's a permanent work in progress.
The current crop of techniques and technologies include:
- The FriendFeed API via JSONP
- The HTML5 Canvas element
- Eric Meyer's Reset Reloaded stylesheet
- CSS3 border-radius and gradients
- CSS3 @font-face support via TypeKit
- The asynchronous Google Analtyics API
- Progressive enhancement
