About Dan Frommer
Hello! I’m Dan Frommer, a Los Angeles-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 links to my projects, photos, 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: In March 2019, I launched The New Consumer, a publication about how and why people spend their time and money. Previously, I was the editor in chief at Recode, the tech and business news publication from Vox Media, and before that, the tech editor at Quartz.
I also publish Points Party, a newsletter about travel and credit card points, frequent-flyer miles, and loyalty programs — sign up for free! 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.
