  • I am the founder of Hyperfiddle, a serious software modeling tool for rapid development of operational cloud applications that scale. For example, use Hyperfiddle to develop, operate and scale a serious gig economy business.
  • My long-term mission is to help people collaborate at scale with the structure and frequency of software. The first step in this is to tame runaway complexity in today’s incomprehensible information systems.
  • I work on Photon, a distributed and reactive dialect of Clojure/Script with compiler-managed network. Photon is interesting because it can express a client/server web application as a single distributed process (not two processes). Imagine React.js but full stack, incremental view maintenance all the way from database views to DOM views, as one streaming computation.
  • Previously, I managed a team of 10 responsible for a HIPAA-compliant cloud application that measures data integrity in Medicaid records as they flow through private -> state -> federal data warehouses.
