Hello. My name is Jakob Skjerning, and you have stumbled across my online home.
Over the years, I have written about games, technology, blogging, life, programming, movies, browsers, usability, projects, mentalized.net, webdesign, reboot, business, biq on rails, copenhagen.rb, hardware, software, ideas, development, substance lab, process, product management, and a few other tidbits.
Digital agency owner
I am the CEO and founder of Substance Lab — a digital agency building successful web applications for startups and small businesses.
I have worked professionally with the web since 2000, and I am particularly interested in user centric websites and beautiful code.
Open source contributor
I have written a few, and contributed to more, open source projects, primarily ones written in Ruby. My open source contributions are all on my GitHub profile.
I like to pretend I'm a photographer and occasionally post photos on Flickr:
