Unused buildings and machines
A simple page where owners of unused buildings and machines can find interested people willing to maintain/improve them or learn to build new products. The goal is to find better uses and ideas for these resources, reduce waste and add some vitality to less densely populated regions or such that are characterized by high fluctuation of people. Resource owners can use their insights and input to help direct the restructuring while not necessarily having to do the hard work themselves.
Job list for web designers and developers
This mini-site allows everyone to list their job offers or reach candidates with experience in a small, focused set of technologies. It seeks to increase the popularity of certain job positions while making them more accessible to everyone. Over time, they have added a lot of value to the economy, which is why we need more of them. Matching people to the right jobs is an important task that is often not well implemented in practice. Many sites offer jobs, but do so in a ceremonial way; here we avoid that ceremony while offering as many as possible to improve the efficiency of the search process and to save people's time.
Search engine for papers
Today it is impossible to imagine a world without scientific discovery. Change is inseparable part of our lives, so we need to constantly adapt if we want to stay current. This means that we need a good overview of what is happening to determine whether our actions are any good. This project gives such an overview to some extent. Its goal is to make the discovery of related content as easy as possible, so we could explore a topic of interest in depth without confusing ranking with real importance. Here you can find a small selection of preselected paper titles. The hours spent on manual data input and data integration from a variety of sources have ensured diversity of content and very fast response times. You could use the insights from these papers to improve any future product.
Minimum spanning tree of a road network
The minimum spanning tree is a recurring problem in many types of networks, which necessitates finding a simple approach to generate it from any given spatial data. Graphs can be used to represent any type of relationship—friendships among people, connections between cities given as a road or rail network, communication paths, cause and effect relationships. Graphs are most useful in concrete applications where we have to work with concrete data as this allows us to learn about the domain.
Dictionary of techniques
The text above shows how the word "autocompletion" was defined. The dictionary of techniques is based on personal discovery and is an attempt to organize pieces of thoughts that can be helpful during design and programming. The definitions are general in order to be useful in a variety of contexts. The content is constantly changing; the updates are very simple.
There was no easy way to show 16 million colors and make them easy to pick. But rendering ≈0.2 million on full screen was possible albeit very slow on initial load. This was achieved through the use of a deprecated property, where other approaches failed. This project was a response to the color pickers that let you pick a single pixel and then show you an approximate color in an indirect way, which is rarely the one we wanted to start with. It can help to estimate the feasibility of some large scale projects in the future.
