You've discovered the Interwebs home for John Tayman—writer, editor, sometime startup-er. I'm the founder and CEO of Byliner. You can learn more about me on this site. Also on the social sites listed below.


As the domain suggests, this is the personal website for John Tayman. I’m the founder and CEO of Byliner, which Fast Company named “One of the Ten Most Innovative Media Companies in the World,” alongside Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, and a few other very cool folk. Byliner gives readers unlimited access to more than 30,000 stories by the world’s best authors—including our award-winning original fiction and nonfiction—all for a low monthly subscription. Basically, what Netflix did for movies and Spotify did for music, Byliner is doing for reading. Give it a whirl. And for those who care about such things, I live in San Francisco with my better half Mimi and a retired seeing eye dog named Kali. (Not shown.)
