I have made a few things I think are kind of cool. These projects are all still on danielelfanbaum.com (in fact: for the time being that’s where they’re hosted), but as I intend to have that site just point here going forward, I thought I may as well start the migration.

And so, some projects:

"A Story as You Like It" by Raymond Queneau, Transposed to the Web

I wrote a little about this here, but basically I took a Queneau story/experiment and made it a website, because that’s probably what it was meant to be all along (websites just hadn’t been invented yet).

VerseFinder

This is a poetry-making Chrome extension that my MFA gave me a little money to make. I wrote about it here, and though I haven’t touched it in a long time, it still seems to work all right. A few of my friends have made some pretty dang neat poems with it.

Python Poems (Class Project)

During my MFA I had the great pleasure of taking a class with Lillian-Yvonne Bertram on Digital Poetics (the same thing as computational lit, but, you know, poetics). This is one of the projects that resulted from it, and though it doesn’t work "live," I’m still reasonably proud of some of the code I wrote towards it.

Experiments in Digital Poetics (Class Project)

Another class project.


I’ve also got some super-secret stuff in development (that I won’t post here yet because I’d like to try and get them published), but for that you’d need a password. If you are really curious, feel free to reach out.
