15 ways to waste your day online with Tim Holman
August 7, 2013 1:33 PM   Subscribe

tholman.com is the playground and folio of interactive developer Tim Holman, where he has posted 15 different projects, both interactive (fizzy cam [info/demo]; ZenPen; Texter; and Image Nodes) and passive (Meet the Ipsums, more than 30 text generators, from corporate to batman; the useless web; dripping paint).

He works with six simple standards for making a project, as detailed in a Digital Detritus Interview.

A bonus link from the interview: OMFGDogs!, which I don't think is his creation, but as mentioned previously, is included in his The Useless Web links.

FizzyCam doesn't seem to work for me. I get the colorful fizzy, but no cam interaction. Oh well...

As a publishing geek, Meet the Ipsums makes me embarrassingly gleeful at how it might potentially be applied. Next draft report to send to a client.... but which one?* It's like a box of delicious chocolates.



*zombie, obviously

Nice tag work dude.

Thanks, I have now added tags for all the 15 applets, and the 30+ members of the Ipsum family. I was going to add all the useless websites, but I got lazy.
