Ben from headmap.org
long history of being involved with things which are almost working.
..i had thought my interest in geo stuff was commercial, I even end up
in front of various Palo Alto VC's, but a friend of mine from India
turned up on my doorstep one day in san francisco..
..after i'd spent a good few hours explaining all the geo thoughts in
my head Suresh said to me "you mean, you want to make the trees sing?"
after that i gave up hope of making money and my thoughts got trippier

at the moment working on 'the geo enabled foaf adhoc mesh internet in
your pocket which should be able to turn a big piece of cheese into a
hat no problem'
previously focused on real time physics engines for next generation
game consoles (PS2 etc) in San Francisco
..some time before that, real time 3d visualisation on PC's (when it
was almost working) The people i was working with at the endof that
period disappeared without trace one day and DirectX appeared a couple
of weeks later explaing where they'd disappeared to.
..some time before that, spent a while teaching fine artists working
with computers at Oxford in the UK
..aside from that, and other stuff, travelled a lot, followed my
at the moment I split my time between London and Paris (where my gf
lives) and think about geo stuff a lot
