Colin as Professor von Explaino, circa 2013

Professor von Explaino

I'm Colin Morris, aka Professor von Explaino. This site contains little web-widgets I've built over the years along with documenting some of my explorations of the steampunk genre.

For the code-savvy: I server-side code in PHP and web front end prefer Foundation. I'm very keen on the Behat implementation of Gherkin for user-testing and am happy to chat about my efforts. I have very little on github, I need to fix that. I'm also participating as much as I can in the IndieWeb, an excellent initiative for owning your own content.

For the steampunk afficionado: I'm of the steampulp persuasion, a member of R.O.S.E.A, S.T.E.A.M and the Steampunk Ghostbusters and a middling tinkerer.

My book
