Work

I work at a SAAS startup called CustomerSure, with Guy and Luke. If you want to get feedback from your customers you can act on, you should be using CustomerSure to gather it.

I’m interested in software which makes the world a better place – for instance by solving real business problems, or helping good causes.

I like digital marketing and product development. I’m pretty fly with Ruby on Rails, RSpec, and front end engineering which gracefully degrades.

Speaking

If given a platform, I will shoot my mouth off about topics I care about. This includes things like “Privacy, Anonymity and the Future” (TEDx Gateshead 2010), and “Names, pseudonyms, and who is hurt by a ‘real names’ policy?”.

Basically anything to do with how technology affects people and society. More specifically, how technology affects under-represented minority groups in society, and how it can be used to increase equality.

I am so not into chatting about ‘my red hot git workflow’ or ‘five amazing css tips’.
