Inspired by Gabriel Weinberg's history of (mostly failed) side projects and startups here's an attempt to list the past and present side projects I've been involved with:
When I made this list and wrote a short paragraph for each of the items, I ended up with a blog post that was quite large and therefore hard to read. So I started looking for ways to cluster the projects and break up the post into multiple smaller ones. In the process I began to wonder what was the main enabler or driver for each group.
An obvious first cluster is Hiphop, which is more of a parallel part of my life, than a side project. Then, there are a number of (mobile) software projects, followed by a few projects focused on hardware. And towards the bottom, Web enabling devices is becoming the dominant theme, or in other words, the "Internet of Things". What drove the projects in all clusters are tools, places and well-connected key persons.
The next posts will cover the projects in each of those groups in somewhat greater detail. I'll try to update this post with links, or at least post them to the comments.
