Here is the beginning of a plan for the Family Diagram app, now including concepts for a simulation model: Standardized Family Diagram app: Construct traditional static family diagrams in iPad / Mac, eventually windows. Use standardized built-in symbols for emotional process between members. Track session snapshots by date for each case file, each snapshot updating ages, births/deaths, [...]
I am very excited tonight. I have had some success using Family Diagram while attending a psychoanalytic case presentation, and also during a brief concept presentation at a local Bowen seminar. An idea came from the Bowen seminar that already adds value to this tool as a practical contribution to Bowen theory. During the psychoanalytic case [...]
I just started work on a new app to create family diagrams for use in psychotherapy organized around Bowen theory, formerly known as family systems theory. This is needed tool is specially intended for Bowenian family therapists and will run on iPad, Mac, and Windows. I have no idea how long it will take to build it [...]
pyqtdeploy is a fantastic build tool for PyQt apps. It crams all the code and libs needed to run the app into a single binary, securing the source and simplifying compatibility and deployment. Thank you, Phil. Unsurprisingly, pyqtdeploy requires that you build static libs of python, sip, qt, pyqt, and qscintilla, and it helps you build [...]

I am currently working through my dissertation which will involve looking at [...]

This post is about understanding the value of maintaining a connection to our history in a world where software and hardware change is a regular occurrence. I have had a hard time letting go of my 12" PowerBook G4. There is something about this little laptop that deserves more than being thrown in the trash [...]
You know what makes a toolkit great? When it does what it's supposed to. It seems like I have to learn a major toolkit for every job I get. For example, for the General Electric work I learned three.js, Unity3D, Adobe Script (for After Effects & Photoshop), among others. When you just hit the road coding and [...]
