I’ve worked as a scientist for the last 20 years, at various universities, a large home and personal care company, a startup in Liverpool called The Sensible Code Company (formerly ScraperWiki Ltd) and now GBG where they pay me to do what I used to do for fun!

Here I write about:

  • the books I have read, typically science and history (or both), partly as a reminder to myself and partly as a review;
  • science, things I have done or things I find interesting;
  • technology, programming and gadgets;
  • politics, and current affairs;
  • …and other stuff as it takes my fancy – holidays, photographs and things I want to remember.

I’m the under-gardener for The Inelegant Gardener, now also Blue Poppy Garden Design.
