about: Here's some boring work details.

I tend to make software. Used to work for Google as a software engineer. Most notably, in my spare time, I started Google Reader. It only became a real product thanks to the care and effort that came from a great group of dedicated people that are much smarter than myself.

Later I worked as a project lead and consultant at Twitter and began a feature known as retweeting and then afterward co-founded Thing Labs where we made Brizzly. We sold that company and then later, I started a new one called Avocado. And now I'm starting a product called Myxt. 'Cause I hate sleep, I guess.

Occasionally I make music, movies. I also eat (with some reservations).
