welcome to my sites page! this is a sort of storage space for me to 'bookmark' different sites i enjoy, and share them with viewers of my own site. these are typically going to be independant projects, forums, or community contributed sites-- personal sites i like are on the mainpage.

if the site has an about, i'll just copy and paste the most relevant paragraph from it for the site's description, and if not, i'll write my own. descriptions that are copy-pasted will be in quotations & italics. for the icons i will try to embed the site, if i can, but many of these will not embed well.

The Internet Map

"Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other."

Listen to Wikipedia

"Listen to the sound of Wikipedia's recent changes feed. Bells indicate additions and string plucks indicate subtractions. Pitch changes according to the size of the edit; the larger the edit, the deeper the note. Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. You may see announcements for new users as they join the site, punctuated by a string swell. You can welcome him or her by clicking the blue banner and adding a note on their talk page."

Stuff On My Cat

stuff + cats = awesome.

as the site itself so aptly describes, this is a collection of photos of cats with stuff on them. from what i can tell it was started in the 2000s by mario garza, who was a student at the time, and got pretty popular-- enough that there's a published book and some merch out there. most of the photos are from user submissions.

Endless Horse

it's a horse!

Queering The Map

"Queering the Map is a community generated counter-mapping platform for digitally archiving LGBTQ2IA+ experience in relation to physical space.

The platform provides an interface to collaboratively record the cartography of queer life—from park benches to the middle of the ocean—in order to preserve our histories and unfolding realities, which continue to be invalidated, contested, and erased. From collective action to stories of coming out, encounters with violence to moments of rapturous love, Queering the Map functions as a living archive of queer life. If it counts to you, then it counts for Queering the Map.

Through mapping LGBTQ2IA+ experience in its intersectional permutations, the project works to generate affinities across difference and beyond borders—revealing the ways in which we are intimately connected."

Stupid Shit No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon

"A one-day event where participants conceptualize and create projects that have no value whatsoever. Organized by Sam Lavigne & Amelia Winger-Bearskin."

this site is fucking fantastic. like the above said theres a whole lot of bullshit on there that literally does not do anything for anyone beyond meaningless joy or disgust or confusion. it's art!!!! i don't think it's been active since 2017, but either way, it's so awesome. my favourite project from it is right down below.


Made by Seth Kranzler

"The Marquis De Sade was a French aristocrat, revolutionary politician, philosopher, writer, and kinky sex freak. The HTML marquee tag is an unofficial HTML element that functioned as a pillar of MySpace page styling, allowing for text to scroll in an animated manner.

What do these two share besides being homophones? Until now, nothing. Introducing Created during the 2017 Stupid Hackathon, this website will present the major literary works of the Marquis De Sade entirely in HTML marquee tags, peppered with festive gifs in the style of my space dot com.

Each browser has their own implementation of the marquee tag. This page seems to run best on chrome. Don't as me why. I don't even know if it runs on IE."
