One question you’re almost certainly not asking yourself is “What’s Mike West been up to?” That’s a shame, really, as I’ve got some projects floating around that I’m proud of, and that I’d like to share with you. Moreover, I’d like to point out the project documentation pages that I’ve put together as a meta-project; I think it’s worth your time to take a look.

projects.mikewest.org JSLint needs some Bad Parts

I ♥ GitHub
Over the last two or three weeks, a substantial subset of my friends and colleagues have started using GitHub to host some of their personal projects. I’m really enjoying this influx, and it’s inspiring in a way I didn’t really expect. GitHub has done nothing less than to make my friend’s coding activity visible to me, and mine visible to them. This doesn’t sound like much, but it’s simply transformative; If this is how “normal” people feel about Facebook, then I can start to understand how it’s captured so much mindshare.
