Lyndon Froese

Hi, I'm Lyndon Froese

These days I mostly make things for the web. I'm focused on two web apps roughly in the online education realm. Before this I was radio personality on 680 CJOB (Winnipeg) and 770 CHQR (Calgary). Before that I published an online magazine. Before that I was a musician and recording engineer. I’ve performed in and written several musical theatre shows. When I was a kid I liked to draw pictures and play variations of baseball in my friend's backyard.

My current projects are:

Software / education tools

Timeline Notation

A system for creating visual timelines for audiobooks and podcasts. Various applications can be built to using Timeline Notation to help folks learn better from audio materials – basically bringing some of the advantages of books and screens to the audio world. It's mostly used for language learning podcasts.

Pacing Thing

A simple web-app that helps friends learn and grow together.

Pacing Thing enforces deadlines for assignments... in a fun way. It is normal to be at least somewhat unsuccessful with motivation in isolation. Put the wind at your back and let the group dynamics of Pacing Thing help.
