Allez Brad
Le Tour began last night with a brilliant ride by Brad McGee giving the Australian the overall lead along with the green points jersey. Aussie Aussie Aussie Oui Oui Oui :-)

Brad's win was a great start to a wonderful day. This morning I raced in a 10km road race with Mum and Dad doing the 5km walk. I had a good race but couldn't compete with Mum and Dad both winning medals for coming 2nd in their age groups! Well Done!!!

On a post race high I zoomed home and played with Jasmine and then went over to Mum and Dad's for a big family roast lunch with Suze's dad down for the day. Lots of fun, jokes, great red wine and lovely food. We realised it must be the first family do in a year or so we could laugh and have a good time and not have to chase and tender to Oskar.

The rest of the arvo was a nice chill out cooking and making pasta finishing with a bit of blogging, stretching and watching the sunset.

An ideal day!!

Playground Finder Flink Labs - Data Visualisation

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
