Jakob Skjerning

Hello. My name is Jakob Skjerning, and you have stumbled across my online home.

I tweet as @mentalizer and email from jakob@mentalized.net.


Over the years, I have written about BiQ on Rails, Copenhagen.rb, Substance Lab, blogging, browsers, business, development, games, hardware, ideas, life, mentalized.net, movies, process, product management, programming, projects, reboot, software, technology, usability, webdesign, 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.

Hobbyist photographer

I like to pretend I'm a photographer and occasionally post photos on Flickr:
