๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello!

I'm @ginatrapani. I build software products for fun and profit. I also like to write about the intersection of life and technology.

Currently I'm a Partner and Director of Engineering at Postlight, where we build platforms that power web sites, apps, and other digital products for our clients. Need help building something? Get in touch.

Before Postlight, I founded sites and services like Lifehacker (acquired by Univision), Makerbase (acquired by Fog Creek), and ThinkUp. My side projects include Todo.txt, an open source collection of text-based task list apps, and Narrow the Gapp, a web site about the gender pay gap.

My writing has been published in The Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, and Wired, among others. Profiles of my work have appeared in venues ranging from The Wall Street Journal to The New York Times. Once upon a time, Fast Company named me one of the Most Influential Women in Technology, and Wired magazine awarded me its prestigious Rave Award.

Some nice strangers also wrote a Wikipedia page about me. To get in touch, you can send me an email to my usual username at Gmail or tweet at me.

Thanks for stopping by.
