Data from typewar can be used for some interesting experiments in hierarchical classification of typefaces.
Eldarion and Massively Overrated have joined forces to work on combined Web/iPhone application development and today have launched a version of typewar for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Part of what makes typewar addictive is the use of points and levels. This post explores how points are awarded and what the level boundaries are.
The October 2009 issue of Python Magazine features an interview with yours truly.
Four weeks ago, we launched a little side project called typewar, which tests how well people know their typefaces. This is the first of a series of blog posts about the site and will explain how the site came about and why we did it. Later posts will go into some of the more interesting technical aspects behind the site.
Eldarion is teaming up with OSWCO to promote open source Django and Pinax solutions at the Bank Administration Institute Retail Delivery show in Boston this week.
James, Brian and Alex are at DjangoCon and we're looking forward to seeing a bunch of old friends and making some new ones. Oh, and we're also giving some talks.
I'm excited to announce that Alex Gaynor is joining the Eldarion team part-time.
Some of you may have noticed the gradient background on this site now has a nice texture to it.
We often want to create gradients like that and, rather than having to open up a drawing tool every time, we use a Python library to generate PNG files based on a specification of the gradient and texture desired.
One thing on our home page that has gotten a lot of interest is our mention of "co-productions" so I thought I'd explain a little about our vision there.
