I work in radio, I’m becoming a teacher, I live in London, I have 3 kids.
I’ve written a short book about a boy on holiday in Cornwall whose life falls apart, and I like making things with Arduinos and Raspberry Pis – like The Little Box of Poems and the Fridge Gizmo.
I like to think I resemble the mutant offspring of Eddie Izzard and Guy Garvey – but the truth is probably worse. I like cheese. You can find me on Twitter as @blogmywiki.
Why ‘Blog My Wiki’?
This started out as a blog called ‘The Weblog and OtherMachines’ and I had the intention of just writing about good and bad technology. Of course the temptation to write any old rubbish that came into my head was too strong to resist.
The name ‘Blog my Wiki!’ came about because I found myself sarcastically saying ‘well, blog my wiki!’ several times a day at work every time someone did something very dull and unoriginal but either put in on a blog / podcast / wiki and then had money, promotion and praise heaped on them from certain parts of the large corporation for which I work.
This annoys me, not least because I was really already blogging back in the 1990s, only it wasn’t called blogging then and we didn’t have lovely tools like WordPress to help us.
