App developer, writer, web enthusiast
I'm Gina Trapani. I build apps, write on the web, and podcast.
I make ThinkUp, a social data insights engine, and Todo.txt, text-based to-do list apps. I host In Beta, a podcast about tech culture and open source, as well as This Week in Google and All About Android, news shows about Google and Android.
I live in sunny San Diego, California, by way of Brooklyn, New York. Some nice strangers wrote a Wikipedia page about me.
Now hosting a weekly audio podcast In Beta alongside Kevin Purdy. In Beta is a talk show about tech culture, making open source software, and how mobile, social, and web apps are changing the world. Watch live and chat with listeners as we livestream each episode on 5by5, usually on Tuesdays at 10am Pacific/1PM Eastern time. Otherwise, subscribe to new episodes in your podcatcher of choice.
