Acknowledgment Platform for the Web

I'm incredibly lucky and happy to participate in a wonderful network of people, communities, and inspiration-- a network that includes my readers as well. This portfolio site offers an attempt to acknowledge that amazing family for the generosity, enthusiasm, and relationship of our creative collaborations.

It's also test software for a larger initiative to redesign how acknowledgment works on the web. I started this project during an independent study with Mitchel Resnick as a Master's student at the MIT Media Lab. For more information read my post on Designing Acknowledging For the Web.
