About Syften

The world is overflowing with user generated data - a stream of countless comments in innumerable discussions. And the vast majority of it has no value to you. We help you find the bits that do.

Think of Syften as automated gold panning - picking those valuable gold nuggets in a vast stream of irrelevant chatter.

Syften was born in 2019 and now it's available to you. Enjoy!

Who's Behind It?

Michal Mazurek

Yep, it's just me. Working solo and full time on delivering fresh, hand baked, artisanal mentions straight to your inbox.

I graduated Wroclaw University's Computer Science department in 2014 and spent my career as a programmer and systems administrator. I've been programming since 12 and running servers since 14, always with my trusty 1989 IBM Model M keyboard. The highlight of my career was membership in the rigorous OpenBSD project.

In the early days of the internet I wrote a tool to monitor Usenet and IRC for mentions of my handle. And after working for multiple startups and running a few of my own products I learned the hard work that goes into acquiring and understanding the needs of the first few customers. Combined this is the perfect set of skills needed to build Syften.

I live in Krakow and after work (and between COVID-19 restrictions) I like to dance the Argentine tango.

A special thank you to
