My name is Simon. I spend my time thinking about ways to improve the way business is done on the internet.

I work for Automattic. I’m changing the way we use data to serve our millions of active customers.

I believe that actionable insights can be found for any business, and lessons from Big Data can bear fruit for smaller businesses, too.

In my blog I mostly write about things I’ve read or things I’m thinking about. Big topics tend to be remote work, leading remote teams, and some critical thinking about organizations and transparency.

If this is your first time here, you can see my most popular Posts in the sidebar of this page. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn or Twitter, both of which I try to keep professional and relevant.
