pure css coverflow
backpackrin was my first full blown website built in Django. Guidebooks in my opinion provide too much, irrelevant and out of date information and take up valuable luggage space in your backpack. Projects such as wikitravel are not perfect for backpackers as they cater for a wider audience and as a result contain information that most of the time is not relevant such as expensive hotels, expensive restaurants. Tripadvisor is also not perfect as you get recommendations from backpackers, romantic couples, couples with families and there's no way to turn off the noise! My vision is that the next generation of guidebooks will contain personalised recommendation from users you subscribe to. Your feedback is valued. I hope to one day revisit this idea and do a better job next time round.
riot map vs deprived areas
was a simple mashup using government and crowdsourced data to link deprived areas to riots in London during August 2011. It took less than an hour to build and most of that
was writing. It even got me a BBC Radio 4 interview.
a website Jon Robson made at Osmosoft for the International Gay Lesbian Association using
the open source projects TiddlyWeb and TiddlyWiki.
It features an HTML 5 canvas tag chloropleth world map. Even has the konami code!
Website for an artist in Tunbridge Wells (no longer online).
Notes music coffee is probably one of the best if not the
cafe in London. Their website
reflect this - it was just an image straight out of photoshop. Jon Robson did his best to turn it into html and
is the result.
is a mobile application Jon is currently developing that allows you to take notes on your phone regardless of your internet connection. It makes use of many HTML5 technologies and allows publishing notes to TiddlySpace.
a popular project Jon started a while back which added mind map functionality to your TiddlyWiki. No longer in development.
Although Jon can't take the credit for the lovely web design of sweet spot Jon can put his name to the hidden gimmick that kicks in when
jqGeoSearch is a jQuery plugin for performing geo lookups. It takes a
place name and turns it into longitude and latitude coordinates with a slight bit of configuration (may need a proxy server).
