I'm a software inventor-entrepreneur. I'm interested in tools for online speech—software that helps good ideas to spread and makes the internet a better place for individuals and society. I've built a few things myself:

  • Yakread, a reading app for newsletters and RSS feeds. It has an algorithmically curated feed that helps to prevent inbox overload.
  • The Sample, a newsletter discovery tool that's driven over 50,000 new subscriptions for participating newsletters.
  • Platypub, the publishing platform that I've used to create this website šŸ™‚.
  • Biff, a web framework that all these apps are built with.

I discuss my work and ideas in a weekly newsletter. You can reach me at hello@tfos.co or chat with me on Discord.
