Mostly learning in public. I look at the economics and governance of online communities, particularly open source software. I'm currently funded by Protocol Labs and also share a research affiliation with Harvard Kennedy School.
I give grants to interesting people on the internet.
Writing is below. I also publish notes in half-baked form. For future updates, you can sign up for monthly emails, where I publish writing, notes, and anything interesting I've read, or get new posts via RSS.
If you're looking for me, find me on Twitter or email@example.com. (While I eventually respond to most email, I'm way more responsive on Twitter. I am also responsive to 280-character emails.)
I’ve recently had several conversations with projects about software foundations, so I figured I should type up my thoughts here.
I was a vegetarian for ten years. When I was twelve, I read something on the internet about how poorly animals were treated on factory farms, and I decided that it was unethical for me to continue eating meat.
