While we've still got plenty of interesting projects in the works, the Seahawks rampage into
the Super Bowl has pretty much taken over the News Apps budget at the Seattle Times this

personality quiz and I-90 trivia
quiz were put together by a new member of the team, and proved extremely popular. I
suspect we'll be working on a <pop-quiz> web component soon enough as a
- Top 12 Moments
of the Seahawks season was a super-fast project that I tossed together this week,
collecting the favorite plays of our knowledgeable football pundits along with some of our
best sports photos.
- (update: Jan. 30) Super Bowl Pick'em
improves on our serverless infrastructure from the fan map to let people make their own
score predictions (and read predictions by columnists and celebrities) even while hosting
- (update: Jan. 30) Super Bowl Matchups
is another scroll-oriented presentation, this time focusing on comparisons between the
coaches, quarterbacks, and cornerbacks who are playing on Sunday. After this, I don't want

Additionally, you may have seen that the Seahawks have launched I'm In

More to come, obviously, as the road to the Super Bowl continues! Or, as Marshawn Lynch
would say, "Yeah."
