Become a sponsor to Omar Rizwan


Omar Rizwan

New York, NY

Hi! I'm Omar. I'm the creator and -- as much as can be said for such a new project -- the maintainer of TabFS. (You may also know me from my Twitter, or from Screenotate, horrifying-pdf-experiments, Geokit in Dynamicland, Hijack Your Feed, or any of a bunch of other hacks and ideas.)

You'll be helping to support the line of independent research and thinking that led to TabFS (and I still have a few more ideas in my pocket πŸ˜‹)

You'll get occasional email updates about what I'm thinking about. People have said some very nice things about these emails:

"lab notes"… like a fabulous newsletter or blog, technical & philosophical. If you're interested in the future of (and/or alternate timelines for) computing, I strongly recommend sponsoring him along with me!
β€”Robin Sloan

I've been loving Omar's (@rsnous) email updates: half philosophy, half computers, organized in a way that lets me meander through his mind
β€”Nadia Eghbal

Omar's periodic sponsor emails are consistently some of my favorite new-media reading. Highly recommended!
β€”Andy Matuschak

If you like my work and want to see more of it, I'd love to have your support.
