I'm a PhD Student based in Culture Lab within the Digital Interaction Group at Newcastle University. I am looking to explore how digital technologies can support communities as well as providing a means of discovering and engaging with them. I am also interested in how might we design technologies in order to enable communities to design and develop digital services for themselves.
I am also interested in Open Government Data and social media mashups to deliver a more personalised experience of Open Data.
I've created a few services such as Fearsquare.com, Feed-Finder.co.uk and Sleepful.me
