Jalada(David Somers)

  • I’m CTO at Pixie Labs, a UK-based software development agency. I sometimes write on the Pixie Labs blog.

  • I co-hosted a podcast called Octal FM for 263 episodes. It was basically an excuse to catch up with my pal, and we chatted about anything that interested us. Mostly video games, sometimes coffee, occasionally cars. We put Octal FM on indefinite hiatus in August 2022.

Websites I’ve made (not at work)

  • Rememo summarises voice memos into bite-sized nuggets of information.

  • Traintrack helps UK commuters get the info they need really quickly.

  • Rivered is an RSS reader for the Twitter generation.

  • Twitterfall was a Twitter client launched way back in 2009. It was once called a Google for the Twitterverse. Most of my professional life can be traced back to making Twitterfall with @x5315. It still had loyal users right up until January 2023 when Twitter changed their stance towards 3rd-party Twitter clients like ours.
