Tools for Online Speech logo
by Jacob O'Bryant

I'm a software engineer at Tyba and a father of two. In my copious free time I design, build, and think about tools for online speech—software that helps good ideas to spread and makes the internet a better place for individuals and society. Some things I've built include Yakread, The Sample, Platypub, and Biff.

My efforts more-or-less fall into three connected categories: developing various software projects; promoting the unbundling of social media into smaller, interoperable services; and building a career path for software invention.

I'm happy to chat about anything: send me an email or post on the forum. See also about me and my resume.

I write an occasional newsletter
about my work and ideas.
