This page has a list of projects that I’ve written that you may of heard of.

Apollo 11 at 50

@apollo11at50 is a Twitterbot which retweeted the Apollo 11 mission timeline in real time (timeshifted by fifty years) in July and August 2019.


TwittElection is a site that wakes up whenever there is a general election in the UK. We build a Twitter list for every parliamentary constituency which includes the Twitter account of every candidate in that constituency.

Line of Succession

Line of Succession is a site that will show you the first thirty names in the line of succession to the British throne on any date in the last 180 years.
