I'm breaking radio silence to explain the uncharacteristic drought of blog posts.
In my last post, I mentioned that I had created a Twibbon overlay for Approve71.org,
allowing you to overlay Approve71's badge over your Twitter icon.
The next day I went over to Approve71's headquarters and introduced
myself to the tech team, Josh, Joe, and Adam.
One thing led to another, and I spent that weekend writing my first-ever PHP code,
which allowed you to upload a photo to Approve71's website,
stamp a banner on it, and then save it so that you could subsequently
upload it to Facebook for your profile picture.
It's been a big success, used a couple of thousand times.
Since then, I spent a lot of time working on a second version,
which lets you crop the photo (using imgAreaSelect)
and choose from a set of overlay banners.
Some of the banners are for the NO on 1 campaign in Maine,
where they're fighting an attempted repeal of their same-sex marriage law.
The second site went live earlier this week.
