Here’s what I’ve been working on lately in terms of web development and related disciplines, outside of my own web site:
- Strike! Magazine
This new magazine just needed a fairly basic web site.
- International Times
I created, co-designed and maintain this web site, which runs on WordPress.
For several years I was the Lead Developer of this long-established writing site, working to make it more usable, better and more stable, both through my own coding and managing the work of others. In 2010 I was employed by Michigan State University to help implement some tests they will be running on the site (which they were hosting at that time). I also lead the site’s science writing group.
- Edinburgh Friends of Médecins Sans Frontières
I looked after the technical side of the web site for this University of Edinburgh MSF-affiliate branch – that is, transforming an existing design into a fully functional WordPress site.
- Wake Up, Freak Out – then Get a Grip
I built, maintain and have been working to promote the web site for my brother Leo Murray’s excellent 11-minute animated film about the importance of positive feedback loops, and the tipping points they lead to in climate change. I am also helping to coordinate the translation of the film – there are 18 foreign-language versions at the time of writing, with more currently being worked on.
- Virtual Campfire
Another project started by Leo, this is a treasure trove of folk song recordings. I recently took over the running of this, making the interface far more usable and better-looking, as well as contributing some new recordings. There’s still plenty to do if I get the time.
- Disney Parks
I was contracted by Spring Digital to fix up this Disney web site, correcting faulty HTML and CSS before it went public.
