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!
