Sushi, sushi, sushi starts with C
Its my birthday tomorrow (2^5 a prime to a prime as Cory says) so we headed out to Kenzan for what turned out to be the best Sushi we've Ever eaten.

We started with a glass of Moet each and then a platter of chef selected sushi which was just amazing. Being a totally indulgent evening we decided to have just a few more pieces and were recommended to try the Yellow fin Tuna Belly which was completely different to a normal tuna sushi. Apparently it isn't available very often and is quite a totally melted in your mouth. YUMMMMMY

The only bad choice was a yellow fishy thing that in hindsight would have to live in a of course I was a bit sick this morning but not enough to detract from the night.

The celebrations continue with drinks and Mum and Dad's this arvo, bubbly and toasted brioche with mascarpone and berries for breakfast tomorrow and friends over for dinner. Not to mention a day off as well :-)

So Hippy Birthday to me!!

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
