Contraption Co.

The Contraption Company is a venture development studio by Philip Thomas.

Our mission is to help society transition to the Information Age. We believe that the next generation of online companies must focus on utility over engagement, that the future of work is distributed and asynchronous, and that economic infrastructure will become increasingly decentralized as governments compete for residents.
