Welcome

I set up this website as somewhere to put together various resources, links, ideas and opinions. It is a hybrid of a blog (with articles by date) and wiki. And comes with a pretentious way of visualising the website.

I will put various things I'm interested in here which should include technology, programming, economics, data, science and more. Each article links to related articles and some kind of structure should 'emerge'. It also (unlike a blog) shouldn't be so obvious that I haven't updated it recently.

Me/My Websites

I work at Zzish, a London based startup building a platform for mobile educational apps. I work across the full stack including Java/Spring backend, Node.js user facing website, Angular.js frontend, Android SDK and iOS SDK. I have made many Android Apps and have over half a million downloads, with Apps featured by Google, CNET, Lifehacker and others. I have a developer site and a short review site.

Previously I was working on a large international, interdisciplinary, EC-funded project to model financial crises.
