Get well Henk
Some sad news in what is the peak cycling time of year with Le tour starting this week.

Last weekend Henk Vogel's crashed at 107km/h (which is damn fast) into barriers during a race in US. He has a broken ankle and fractured if not broken back. The doctors say if he didn't his helmet on he would be dead.

We've followed Henk's racing for the last 7 years and have seen him in action in the Tour Down Under and I saw him in a race in San Fran a couple of years ago. Suzette even got his autograph a few years ago...this is a big deal for us :-)

From Suze and I "Get well Henk!!!!"

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
