About SplatF

SplatF is a news site from technology writer Dan Frommer, launched in July 2011. (Related: What does SplatF mean?) If you’re curious, it is pronounced “splat eff”.

Previously, I helped create Silicon Alley Insider in 2007 with Henry Blodget and Peter Kafka, which grew to become Business Insider. There, I did everything from reporting (5,700 posts) and editing to coding early versions of the site.

Before that, I was a technology reporter at Forbes, focusing on mobile and telecom. And before that, I studied at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, where I hosted a late-night radio show called “Fromming at the Mouth.”

I started designing websites in 1995, including my personal site, FromeDome. I grew up in Chicago but now live in Brooklyn, where I publish this site and work on other projects, including City Notes.

Inspiration: Business Insider, Chank, Daring Fireball, 5by5, Michael FrommerInstapaper and Marco ArmentAdam Lisagor, and Andrew Mason.

Stock disclosure: I do not own any individual stocks.
