I’m a middle-aged nerd who lives in Bath. I love Bath.
I also love the web.
I’ve spent the last 10+ years of my career working on open data. Both as a freelancer and with the Open Data Institute.
Before that I spent about 10 years building data and content platforms to support the publication of academic research.
Over the last 20 years or so I’ve:
- spoken at a range of conferences
- written blogs, tutorials and research papers
- advised public and private sector organisations about how to collect, manage and publish open data
- contributed to the development of open standards
- helped launch EnergySparks and Kudos
- chaired a community-lead open data initiative here in Bath
- and raised a family
It’s been fun!
