Another reason am sticking with knockoutJS, but will learn AngularJS once I buy more time…

The Virtual Gael

Or, how Steve Sanderson outdid the Google geniuses

(and I’m not one given to praising anything out of Microsoft)

I’ve been working in the Digital Innovation Lab at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, for over four months now, developing tools to that enable humanities scholars to produce and engage with digital resources. Our main focus is on a sophisticated WordPress plug-in called DH Press.

Our plug-in enables the administration-user to configure projects so that all kinds of information can be utilized and visualized. The main kind of visualization supported to date is geographical (base maps and overlays), although we also support transcriptions synchronized with SoundCloud recordings.

About Kabue Charles

I am an instigator of artistic, intelligent and mind boggling softwares. I love C#, envy C++, and one day I might try CUDA. I prefer solving complex and mission impossible problems in a new or old but innovative way. Am intrigued by machine learning challenges, security critical challenges, and privacy challenges like a real serverless peer-to-peer communication. I am usually literally stressed when a day goes by without learning or doing something new. I avoid repetition whenever possible. Away from computers, I enjoy capturing moments of life and nature with 1080 (…and above) pixel pictures and videos. I like details, accuracy, idealistic but realistic personalities. I love futurist’s but I hate fantasy. A decent, moderate and gentle character is my favorite. I avoid shame like a plague, confront my fears with facts, and I am very constant with opinions and beliefs. I love suits (…but don’t wear them), arsenal football club (…I only know the manager), and I have no favorite food. Reading and writing poems helps me retain my sobriety. I consider myself funny, privileged, a renaissance man and sometimes shy. I believe in things unseen and incomprehensible.
