About Dan Frommer
Hello! I’m Dan Frommer, a Brooklyn-based writer and designer. I’ve been running this site in some form since 1995, when it was called FromeDome’s Page From Hell.
Here, I post photos, links to my work, and short articles that wouldn’t make much sense elsewhere. You’ll also find the archives for SplatF, a tech news site I published from 2011 to 2014.
More about me: I’m the Tech Editor at Quartz, a global business news site from Atlantic Media. I’m also the founder of City Notes, a mobile startup. And I host a podcast, The Needle & The Mouse, with my wife Lauren Sherman — who shot this zany photo of me in Rio.
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. Wired and the New Yorker wrote about our work.
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.
