I'm a System, Information and Web programmer, and part of the University of Southampton IT Innovation team.
I'm the University Linked Open Data Architect; I designed, built and maintain http://data.southampton.ac.uk/ which is setting the pace for open data from organsations. I'm the author of many little bits of software including Graphite (a PHP Library for working with RDF, inspired by jQuery), Grinder (a cheap and cheerful tool for making RDF from spreadsheets or other tabular data). I am titular lead developer for EPrints, but all the real work is now being done by my colleague Tim Brody.
Along with 6 others I was one of the founders of Thee Temple ov thee Lemur, who made dumb/fun web stuff back before the millenium. In my spare time I like to create subversive, pointless or just plain incorrect RDF documents, and continue to struggle with a debilitating Minecraft addiction.
