The Place Where I Put Stuff On The Internet?™

head shot of Glen Chiacchieri Hello, cats and kittens! My name is Glen Chiacchieri. I've worked at the MIT Media Lab on Scratch, at a wacky research lab called Dynamicland with Bret Victor, and now I'm becoming a psychotherapist. I've made tons of projects over the years and this website is a public archive of pretty much all the creative stuff I've done. Please feel free to email me for any reason.
