stuff friends have done
Video game, math blog, tarot deck, perl testing framework, and Dracula's wolves.
rdansky worked on a new and gorgeous-looking side-scroller video game (downloadable for XBox Live) called Outland.

melindadansky is writing a blog called Statistically Savvy. Recommended if you know less about math than you should - meaning practically all of us.

The Tarot of the Silicon Dawn by shatterstripes is now available for preorder.

(I have an advance and incomplete version of the deck from last year.)

Michael DeHaan wrote a perl testing framework. He asked for naming suggestions for a testing framework, wanting something mythological. He used my suggestion of Procrustes.

Mark Sample was irritated that his Twitterfeed was filling up with a hashtag from a conference he was not attending. So he invented a hashtag for an imaginary digital humanities conference #MarksDH2010. Others helped.

My friend Whitney at Duke has an interesting online article about the wolves in Stoker's novel Dracula. I thought it was interesting, insightful, and importantly it was a lot of fun.
