The brains behind this operation

Lemniscus is currently a one-person shop, actively connected with the CiviCRM community, other developers, technology strategists and nonprofit technology leaders.

Noah Miller Noah Miller has been tinkering with computers since elementary school. His first paid programming work, as a teenager, was for the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. He studied cognitive science and music as an undergrad, then jumped into the world of nonprofit science journalism, where he built his first Drupal websites and databases. He founded outLoud Radio in 2002 to support LGBTQ youth in empowering themselves by telling their stories, and grew the organization over the next 12 years. Now, drawing on his experience using CiviCRM and website platforms for his own social justice nonprofit, he helps other organizations get the most out of these powerful technologies.
