What is this place?

My name is Ben Williams aka Negative Eddy on Twitter, Xbox, etc. I’m a development consultant in the Developer Advisory Services organization at Microsoft. This is the blog stuff I find interesting. Stuff that I do because I enjoy it. When I can. When the Xbox is not calling my name. When work doesn’t demand otherwise. If you enjoy it too please drop me a line and let me know.

My Apps in the Wild

  • 480px – Explore and discover beautiful photography from 500px.com on your Windows Phone
  • Poetry and Motion – Create fun and amusing  random poetry with virtual word tiles on your Windows Phone

Greatest Hits

  • QuMa – The first ever (as far as I know) Windows based editor for Quake maps. Wow, I had essentially what you’d call a blog back in ’96!

  • Zupelz – Create and solve jigsaw puzzles with your own images. This never actually made it out the door but was mostly complete and my family had fun with it. This might be resurrected for the phone.

And many others in a long list of experiments with uninspiring names like “application14”, some successful some not so much, in games, graphics, and whatever else caught my eye that week. e.g. Screensaver based on flocking behavior and a tool to make your own mosiac from your personal photos.
