Allan Lasser is an independent publisher and software designer. He believes the web can be a beautiful place where people use computers to do better, more often, with less.

In 2017 he co-founded of Massive, a science media company, to give everyone the scientific tools to grapple with uncertainty.

Before that, between 2014 and 2016, he was the senior designer and lead developer at MuckRock, where he helped ordinary people make sense of public records and led the top-to-bottom redesign of the platform. As as part of this, he also hunted for the oldest computer in the federal government.

In 2014, he graduated from Boston University with one degree in Computer Science and second degree in American Studies. His American Studies thesis was presented at the 2013 Eastern American Studies Association Conference and subsequently published in a journal of undergraduate research.
