Professional Background/Education eg. BSS/OSS
I've been fascinated by mobile for over a decade. Self taught and motivated, I've been programming and designing software for 15-20 of the last 25 years (I'm now 35). I'm interested in creating innovative services that combine elastic grid computing (e.g. Amazon Web Services), Linux and PHP, delivering to mobile web or mobile Java (J2ME) front ends, and am getting into emerging telephony (coupling IVR, VoIP, elastic server clouds and Asterisk or FreeSwitch).
Increasingly my focus is on building stuff to help the developing world using these technologies. There is vast scope to do so right now - not so much to make money, but to help people on a large scale. I would love to build systems that serve many millions of people, but it is a huge challenge - however, for the first time technologies that allow this are available to individual developers at very low cost, so it's exciting.
Personally, I like to lead a balanced life and frequently get away from phones, computers and the internet and hang out with friends who have no interest in such matters :) I love windsurfing, snowboarding and I rollerblade a lot around central London. The English countryside is my natural environment.
