Hello, I'm Kevin Wu.
I'm a software engineer who also likes to learn about design and product. Currently at Academia.edu working on product driven development of tools that make scientists happy. Previously co-founded Plasmyd.com and in a past life, studied maize proteomics with Steve Briggs and Justin Walley at UCSD. Sometimes I regret not getting a PhD. I'd like to get back into teaching; feel free to reach out if you have an opportunity.
Trying to find a way to monetize these page views so that it pays for it's own hosting costs. Contact me if you sell non-spammy ads or work at Amazon on the affiliate program.
A curated list of UI styleguides. At Academia.edu, we were trying to come up with a reference of design patterns and UI components to standardize on. This is a list of companies who have made beautiful, public references that I often draw inspiration from.
Hypepy (pronounced hyphy) is an python wrapper around Hype Machine. Has support to fetch playlists and related metadata, but I mostly use it to download music from Hype Machine. Adds metadata and album art so it shows a nice image on my phone.
I enjoy photography, but my portfolio site needs a redesign and is down for now. In the past I took lining up colors on the Rubik's cube seriously and my fastest single solve in competition was 15.60s.
I'm currently in the process of moving my blog to Medium. Turns out they don't allow you to add custom dates to your articles, so now a bunch of my posts will look like they were on the same day.
