Hi, I'm a Python programmer and serial inventor of SEO secret weapons and a relatively new daddy—trying to do the most good for my child and the world. This is my daily work journal. Try my free seo/social site-audit tool called 360iTiger, and the long-tail keyword tool called HitTail, and the tiny virtual Linux that runs from Macs, PCs & Linux called Levinux.

Well, it’s Tuesday, the day of New Years Eve, and […]

Found The Love in HTML5… Finally!

December 10, 2013

Note: This is an daily work journal entry extracted from a new DVCS on a new project. Wow, I’m liking my current project, finally. I often feel that the thing you’re working on RIGHT NOW must be as interesting as anything else going on in your life, or else distraction or paralysis will seize you. […]
