Dan is a broadcaster, writer, software developer, designer, and ex-corporate stooge. He is the founder of 5by5, an Internet broadcasting and podcast network where he hosts a handful of shows including Back to Work with Merlin Mann, QUIT!, The Dan Benjamin Hour, and Road Work with John Roderick.
He has been coding for almost two decades, making things like the Email Address Enkoder, the A List Apart CMS, the 5by5 CMS, co-founding Cork’d, and creating Playgrounder. The latter two have since been acquired by Gary Vaynerchuk and Uncrate, respectively.
Dan lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and their two brilliant but incorrigible children.
