Cake for America

The Code for America project at Clearleft was fun for everyone involved. And because the code for the site is open to anyone to contribute to, the fun didn’t have to stop when the project officially wrapped up.

Because of her experience with front-end styleguides, we had hired Anna to work as a front-end developer on the Code for America project. But even when she was officially discharged of her duties, she decided to keep contributing to the public codebase.

For this service above and beyond the call of duty, Mike rewarded her in the time-honoured way: cake! In this case, the cake was inspired by the unofficial project theme song we blasted out every morning in the Clearleft HQ.

In some ways, Voice Box is a pretty neat application. It downloads RSS feeds and turns them into sound files that you can save (and even sync to your iPod).

Ben Hammersley’s article about the internet in Iran has been published in The Guardian. It’s a fascinating read.
