Welcome to the personal home page of web developer Clark Rasmussen. I'm trying to blog more than I used to but in addition to that, this is where you can find my portfolio (now part of the blog), resumé, and a handful of other things. Look up in the header for ways to find me on social media.

Talking About the Weather

I was staring in anger at my car thermometer this morning when I had a little bit of a revelation.

You think about the weather and, in general, people understand concepts.  Hot and cold.  Dry and wet.  We’ve attached numbers to them and we know what they mean but only because we’ve made this association between the number and experience.

Okay, nothing groundbreaking but as I was staring at this “-9″ in my dashboard, I got to doing the math.

We generally consider 70 degrees to be a pretty nice temperature.  Maybe 75.  Whatever.

And freezing is, of course, pretty cold.  Kinda miserable.

Today we are just as far from freezing as 70 is, only in the opposite damn direction.

I’m cold just thinking about it.

My Projects


DetroitHockey.Net is my long-running tribute to the Detroit Red Wings, where I do a lot of writing about the team as well as post photos and stats.

RT @mattbarcomb: Let's all start calling "Product Roadmaps" what they really are: "Fantasy Development Schedules"...I'm sure it'll catch on!

Well, I guess showing up at 4:40 *technically* fulfills a promise of showing up in the afternoon.
