(Thomas) Wilson

I love the craft of making well-built things, especially software and clothes. My embarrassing but earnest goal is to:

make things stronger which don't rely on exploitation, excessive waste, or dishonesty; and to try and build a kinder, fairer world even when it's hard.

I try to think and be curious, which is why I keep a weblog and, equally worth mentioning, what got me through a Ph.D. in Education Technology.

Here are some things I've written recently:

  1. đź“– Matrix (2024-06-01)
  2. Modern web tools and platforms are useful. (2024-05-23)
  3. Very Convincing Large Language Models (2024-05-07)

Right now I am a Senior Software engineer at Laka, making insurance genuinely fairer. Before that, I was Head of Software Engineering at Oxwash, building tools for actually sustainable laundry and wet cleaning.
