So I went and started a company

I’m delighted to say that after a couple of years of a break from the startup world (which I’ve inhabited for most of the past decade), I’ve decided to throw my hat back into the ring. Together with Bethanye Blount, I’ve started a company named MailRank. We’re working on helping people to manage the all-too-common problem of email overload. You can read a little more about what we’re up to in our initial announcement, and we’ll have more details to share soon.

Since I’ve spent the past two decades in the world of open source, of course I have goodies to show off:

  • A fast, powerful library for working with the Riak decentralized data store (mailrank/riak-haskell-client on github). I think it’s the best Riak client library available for any programming language :-)
  • An efficient, easy to use JSON library for Haskell (mailrank/aeson on github). Twice as fast as the competition.
  • I’m excited to be working with Bethanye once again, and thrilled that we’re going to have our first employee join in ten days.
  • Posted in open source
