About me

I’m a research and teaching assistant at the Consumer computing laboratory (CCL) of the School of electrical engineering and computing in Zagreb, Croatia. My work is focused on research of the World Wide Web architecture, consumer programming and student mentoring.

If you’d like to stay in touch with my activities, you can read my blog and follow me on Twitter or FriendFeed. I have a Google profile, LinkedIn profile, Picasa and Flickr account.

These are some of the projects I’m currently working on:

  • Geppeto (contributor): Geppeto (Gadget Parallel Programming Tool) is a consumer-level programming environment designed for gadget composition. In this case, the building blocks used to create an application are gadgets. The Geppeto environment itself is a gadget designed to run on the iGoogle page.
  • Feed-buster (owner): Feed-buster is a service that automatically injects media enclosure links into RSS/ATOM feed items based on media present in the item description and content. Feed-buster was primarily developed for better RSS/ATOM feed media importing into FriendFeed.
  • Pmrpc (owner): Pmrpc is an inter-window cross-domain RPC JavaScript library for HTML5 browsers. The library provides a simple API for exposing and calling procedures from windows or iFrames on different domains, and several advanced features.
  • UrlEcho (owner): UrlEcho is an HTTP-based client-server protocol for defining the HTTP response to a HTTP GET request within the request itself. The project also provides a reference implementation of an UrlEcho server as a public, open-source and free to use AppEngine service.
  • Apache Shindig (contributor): Apache Shindig is the reference implementation of an OpenSocial container. OpenSocial defines a common API for social applications across multiple websites.

    Question about forms:

    Hi, I have a question about Google Forms. I was wondering if there was any way to make the form smaller so it could fit into my website. Thanks,

    When you create a Google Form, there is an option to get the code to embed the form into your website. The code looks like this:


    Notice the width and height attribute which have values of 760 and 585. Change those values to something smaller before pasting the code into your website and the form will be smaller (eg. width=”400″ height=”400″).
