Humanist technologist. Equality and adventures.

I co-founded Elgg and Known, worked on Medium, and now invest in innovative media startups to support a stronger democracy at Matter.


Facebook and Twitter are not good organizing tools. Using them has led to a tactical freeze for many movements, says @zeynep.


"Let's treat this as the emergency this is." Sobering words from @zeynep: if we don't seize the moment, we may never get it back.

Excited to be at the today. So many amazing people in the room thinking about the future of media and democracy.
