Other projects

Verbal Victor
Paúl Pauca, myself, and team of programmers created Verbal Victor, an augmented communication device for children with communication problems. The website is here. VerbalVictor currently runs on iOS, with dedicated iPhone and iPad versions available in the iStore.
We've sold over 2000 copies, garnered press in the AP and CNN (video), and Dr. Pauca has extended the success of VerbalVictor in a Software Engineering course at Wake Forest that produced several more new promising assistive applications.
Sofware Carpentry
Greg Wilson created Software Carpentry, to teach software engineering concepts to scientists and other makers and users of software. We currently host multi-day workshops all over the world to give working scientists hands-on training.
