Biography: I'm working on free and open-source alternatives to centralised approaches to social networking for BT. Previously, I was at Twitter where I built one of the institutions that I am now aiming to dismantle. I'm primarily interested in how we can structure online tools in ways that support communication and the work of entrepreneurs and marginalised communities alike. This was once the implicit point of the internet, but we've lost our way, and the value of privately-held companies now seems to be the main interest in tech communities. A recent side project of mine is an open-source, web-based eBook reader. I'm interested in finding ways to improve it such that it is a useful tool for discussion and distribution of written material that doesn't fit into the blog paradigm, particularly poetry and other non-commercial forms.
