About

I had my heart-and-mind blown during the Occupy Movement in 2011. Since then I've been learning how people can work together without dominator hierarchies.

After Occupy, my friends and I started Loomio, an open source tool for small scale digital democracy. I'm also a Director at Enspiral: a high-trust network of ~200 people exploring self-management and collective ownership. I believe that practicing small group democracy is vital to building a civil society that's fit for the 21st century.

I regularly write blogs to share what I'm learning about  more inclusive organisations, collectives, co-ops and companies. With my writing I aim to be accessible, critical, and chirpy. I only publish stuff I think is going to make the Web a better place to be. Here's some examples:


I'm writing a book that offers practical guidance for decentralised organising -- you can buy the work-in-progress here (patrons have free access).

For more about me, check out my website, or join my newsletter for occasional updates.

I have a deep commitment to the commons: for the past ten years I've published all my work freely, with an open license for anyone to read, learn from, use, copy and modify. I'm going to keep publishing freely like this, but I'd like to have more time to do it.

In my ideal world I'd be a full time writer. I've got a few books eager to jump out of my fingers, like the one about unpicking the patriarchy from my masculinity. This Patreon campaign is an experiment to see if the good people of the Web will pay some fraction of my rent so I can dedicate more time to this writing gig.

Thank you so much for your support! ❤️💚💛💙💜
