Matt Hamer Hello. I'm Matt Hamer. I've been producing software for over twenty years. For the past ten, I've helped teams create publishing systems, databases, crawlers and search indexes for popular sites like Gizmodo, Deadspin, io9 and Blogger. In 1999, I developed Weavelet, one of the first web-based feed readers. A few years later, I helped launch another aggregator, Kinja. Eight years ago, I started building Attribyte with the idea that search technology combined with algorithmic recommendation could help readers create their own personalized digests without requiring them to find, curate and follow a large list of feeds.
