Matthew Sweet | In Motion

Hi, nice to meet you.

I'm Matt; a reader, writer, product manager and self-taught programmer. Broadly, I'm interested in complex systems, computing and communication.

The simplest way to reach me is email: matt@thisdomain. I use email for correspondence, not capture. Cold emails are welcome; I'm responsive by default and I operate by Crocker's Rules. I'm also reachable on on Warpcast, Twitter and a dynamic set of Discord servers and Slack groups.
