For those of you who don't know, I work from home. This has its ups and some downs but being able to work in jeans and tshirt and slippers each day with a great view and quiet surrounds is just wonderful.
Today I got a visit from the delivery/courier man and it made me think how much I love getting deliveries. There is something very special and joyful about getting a buzz at the gate and having to get a box...I guess it generally means a present or something fun has arrived but I love it.
It seems to make working at home all that more special.
neuronwave is the personal site of Ben Hosken. I am the founder of Flink Labs, a data visualisation studio based in Melbourne. Previously I founded AgentArts, where I developed a recommendations system that we ultimately sold to MSFT.I have two patents, one in Recommendation Systems and one for a datamining algorithm I invented. I have a strong interest in physical computing, emergence, self organising systems, immersive games, bluetooth ad hoc networks and other fun things.
A while ago I built and ran Blog Change Bot - an AOL IM Bot which notified you when blogs you like are updated. I also built IcyPole, a bluetooth based P2P mobile phone app in 2004. With Suzette, I've built Playground Finder - a community contributed site for parents to find playgrounds nearby and while traveling for their kids to play in. Its a "playground" for my social, location, community and mobile interests.
I live in Melbourne with my wife Suzette, son Oskar Tex and my little girl Jasmine
