I live in Lincoln, UK with my wife and daughter. I work at the University of Lincoln in the Centre for Educational Research and Development and co-ordinate the work of LNCD. I help develop software and publish, too. I’m interested in hacking as labour and how hackers produce value. I’m especially interested in the role of universities in hacker culture and how young hackers learn their craft. I am also a founding member of the Social Science Centre, Lincoln. Outside of my work, I enjoy building, maintaining and riding bikes.
