Hi. I’m Anthony Prestia.

I’m an attorney who makes bots, games, frameworks and various Internet things. This site is where I share a selection of personal projects.

Selected Bots

  • greatartbot is a fully automated artist that creates four images a day and publishes them to twitter. An early version of greatartbot’s source code is available on GitHub.
  • muzeumbot creates low-res, slightly bizarre images by combining Open Access images from the Met (via museumbot) with palettes from COLOURlovers. Powered by uncontext.
  • maderradar uses publicly available data and a few co-conspirators to create a crowd-sourced tracking mechanism for a single individual.
  • drakeomatic is a Markov text generator that analyzes Drake lyrics from genius.com and constructs tweets that are sometimes insightful, sometimes funny, sometimes quotes, and sometimes often complete gibberish.
  • playlightsout is a twitter port of Lights Out, and the first (as far as I know) graphical game on the twitter platform.

Some Other Projects

  • hxgk-flixel is a haxe library that adds Apple Game Center support to iOS projects developed using HaxeFlixel.
  • twixel is an iOS extension for HaxeFlixel that adds twitter support.
  • textmate-synthcity is a TextMate (or Sublime Text) theme based on Steph Thirion’s synthcity color palette.
