Empower freedom in AI

Hi, I'm Yitao Hu. I founded SelfReason to share a collection of thoughts and tools for ordinary, non-technical people to better use technology.

Why you can trust us

  • I won gold medalsšŸ„‡ in the official National Programming Competition in both China and SingaporešŸ˜Ž
  • I worked at corporations like Google and AI startups
  • 20+ years of tech tinkering since I first touched a computer in 1999!
  • Why now

  • Tech is rapidly changing with AI and anyone can benefit from a bit of insight
  • Clickbaits and AI-generated content are flooding, and every comparison article ends with "It depends". Hot takes from experts are more valuable than ever
  • New AI tools promise big things but many just manipulate us for profit. The transition to a centralized mega-AI spells doom.
  • Many valuable knowledge, tools, and tricks are hard to fit into a product and monetize
  • At SelfReason, you simply pay us to help your daily life with tech. Together, let's create a future that makes our lives more convenient while preserving autonomy!
