Hello everyone,

I'm the creator of ZapRead.com, which is something I want to build for the world.  My ambition is to make a global publishing platform which removes the need for publishers.  I think of it as what happens when you mix Bitcoin, economics, social media, and publishing.  

My background is in Physics, and I have a day job, so I work on ZapRead mostly in the evenings after the kids are in bed!  It's a lot of work, and that's why I made the website open source.  I invite the world to help contribute.

I have always enjoyed programming (even though that's not my normal job).  I am also really excited about Bitcoin.  I discovered bitcoin in 2010 and have been studying it ever since then.  I remember mining my first bitcoins using my laptop at night.  How I wish I didn't sell those!  I think the best I can do for Bitcoin now is to build something which helps people obtain their first Bitcoin (I built a bitcoin faucet (https://www.coinpanic.com/Lightning/CommunityJar), and of course people can earn their first Bitcoins on ZapRead by posting quality content or discussion.

Go LN! go BTC!
