January 26, 2011 – 2:26 pm

We all hate paying for hosting and the nagging maintenance that come with.

A lot of web stuff does require near constant attention, but what about tossing up those pages that aren’t ever going to change?

Well for the true nerds and github goobers out there “you can host your static content with zero cost, zero maintenance and very little real tech knowledge (just git), a bit of rake) and some gigantic internet nuts).”

Here’s how to host static sites for free on Google App Engine via the github “bucket” tool DryDrop.

Doc Pop’s “Daily App Experiment” created with iPhone image apps

January 18, 2011 – 12:05 pm

Doc Pop wears many digital hats: iPad musician,  visual experimenter of mobile apps, blogger, yo-yo madman, game developer/designer, painter, illustrator, etc. etc.

He’s was also my first follower on the (primarily) iPhone (only) social photo app http://instagr.am.

The good doctor does a Daily App Experiment where he takes an images and applies manipulations using different iPhone apps.  He used a photo I shot and posted to Instagr.am yesterday to make #48 in the series.

Daily App Experiment #48: “Nettled Birds” – Saw this pic in @dippold’s instagram and asked if I could play with it. Using TypeDrawing, I added one trillion birds to his original image. I’m really happy folks are willing to let me alter their images. (Taken with Instagram at Daily App Experiment) ~Doc Pop
