Make a deal with the Universe
Making a deal with the universe began as an experiment to see what people value by having people make deals with the universe. The responses were unexpected, and went from simply an experiment into an inspirational piece filled with the hopes and dreams of hundreds of people around the world.

Codebreak - get free games if you have the skills
This project was inspired by xkcd where people would represent their alma mater in a contest to break a cryptographic hash. I wanted to give away some games that came with the Humble Bundle, so why not give them away to people who can try to break codes?

Multilingual Project

We added a new feature to Igloo Communities: personal language. This setting translates all system text into the preferred language, and will display the proper language version of content if it exists. Buttons for translating content through machine translation (Google Translate) are available for comments, and anything else that doesn’t have multiple language versions.

Part 1 - Interface Decisions

Add Article Interface

Our choice of interface for editing and creating content is using tabs, one for each language. This allows the user, whether contributing from blank or editing a translation, to quickly go through the different versions to determine correctness.

Microblogging Project

As people are more attached to social media like Twitter and Facebook, so too must the Igloo services change to meet those methods of communication. The purpose of the Microblogging project is to introduce microblogging into the Igloo Communities suite of communication tools.
