Paperback is a clean and simple way to read Pinboard articles later. Like a good book, Paperback is lightweight, easy to use, and enjoyable. I started Paperback in 2013 and am the product architect, developer, and sole proprietor.


Litsub is an email-based community of writers, editors, readers, and literary folks. Started in 2019, is a place for people to share in their love of writing.

I maintain an installation of Mailman to host my own mailing list and wanted to share the platform for other writers. I also created the mailing list as a community of writers to talk about our craft.

Writing and Publishing Utilities

I’m in the process of developing a personal set of writing and publishing utilities, including a system deeply integrating tmux, vim, and MediaWiki, as well as a python application for publishing and deploying static websites. I’m continuing to refine these products and plan to open source each as they stabilize. Some of these are below:


Creating this plugin has had a greater impact on my writing than any other tool. It uses pandoc and a latex template to generate a well formatted document and then sends it to your printer all from vim. Now you have a hard copy draft that you can mark up. Writing and editing in separate tools and phases helps me focus on doing one at a time. See more on Github.


As part of expanding my writing into poetry and desiring a particular format for poetry on this site, I wrote a plugin for python-markdown called mdx_poetic. Learn more about how to install and use the project on PyPi.
