Second Place Mobile Dev Camp

Posted by Juice10 Tue, 09 Dec 2008 09:18:00 GMT

My iPhone app Canned Openers won second prize at the Mobile Dev Camp Hackathon. I won a Aliph Jawbone Bluetooth headset for my iPhone.

Canned Openers iPhone App

Canned Openers displays random conversation openers to help you getting started in fun conversations with future friends.

The app isn’t finished yet but I am planning on getting it to the App Store so that you can all check it out.

TV notify Recently I launched TVnotify is a website that will send you notifications via RSS/E-mail and more, whenever a new episode of your favorite TV show airs.

The website was born out of frustration with the writers strike and the confusion that led from it. After rechecking TV series every week to see if there were any new episodes I got frustrated and decided to create a site devoted to my problem.

The site design, HTML and CSS was done by my good friend and colleague Jonno Riekwel. The rest of the site was built by me and was created using Ruby On Rails.

Soon I will be integrating twitter notifications and iCal feeds.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions I will be happy to hear them!

Social network annihilation week

Posted by Juice10 Mon, 25 Feb 2008 12:44:00 GMT

It’s officially social network annihilation week over here at Juice10. All social networks that bug me get one last trip to the site so I can trash my account.

Its really simple, if a social network (or any other site) bugs me without enriching my life I remove my account from there site and never visit there site ever again.

The following sites have lost me as a customer because they bugged me today:
  • Wayn
  • Ringo

I’m also removing friends from social networks that send me chain emails.

IE removes object/embed activation click

Posted by Juice10 Thu, 13 Dec 2007 11:06:00 GMT

The now launched preview of Internet Explorer will not require you to “click to activate” before being able to interact with object/embed elements (Flash, etc.)

The guys over at Microsoft have removed the click to activate after striking a deal with Eolas Technologies inc.

Dutch Guild of Front-Enders meeting this evening

Posted by Juice10 Thu, 23 Aug 2007 09:40:00 GMT

Today is a busy day for the hard core web community members here in the Netherlands. This morning I attended the Amsterdam OpenCoffee Meetup. It was packed compared to last week, probably because there wasn’t any lethal weather this time ;)

And this evening is the Gilde van Front-Enders is having their very own meetup in Rotterdam.

Mangrove’s Ruben Bos will give a talk that will hopefully make professionals more professional and make ppk happy ;)

Beforehand HappyClog is having a beer @ a secret location somewhere in Rotterdam.

And afterwards as is custom with any social web related event, we will have more beers and fight over who has nicer class names in their css ;)

Get to know me

Posted by Juice10 Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:15:00 GMT

After Wilfred Nas passed me the ball I am now also going to share five things about me that you probably don’t know or care about :)

  • I’m a fashiongeek.
  • I love drawing illustrations in Illustrator and I have been doing this since I was seven.
  • I’m a huge Apple junkie (although most probably already knew this).
  • I have been thinking about starting a fashion blog and a podcast for ages.
  • This is what I look like today:
    Mugshot of Justin Halsall.
    (yeah I know my eyes look weird, its the reflection of my screen I’m not a mutant ;)

The next people I’m passing the ball to are: Rodney Ramdas, Norbert Crombach, Thijs van der Vossen, Manfred Stienstra & Martin ‘Windgazer’ Reurings
