Sam Clay

Our third hire! Developer Samuel Clay joins DocumentCloud today, bringing our full time staff to a total of three.

Samuel joins us from Storybird, a collaborative storytelling startup which works with artists to give children access to high quality narrative art that they can use to publish their own original stories. He’s also the mastermind behind NewsBlur, an open source feed reader that uses artificial intelligence to suggest stories you might want to read. Think of it as an RSS reader with intelligence.

Samuel lives in Brooklyn with his dog and guinea pigs, where he photographs historic districts for New York Field Guide. Find him at or on twitter.

He’ll be bringing his formidable JavaScript skills to DocumentCloud’s workspace, which should be getting more awesome twice as fast now.
