eMusic RSS Feeds and lists
The last few weeks, I've been sending part of my working day developing RSS feeds for eMusic along with finalising the lists functionality for them.

The good news is that Lists will go live next week (Tuesday US time) and the RSS Feeds soon thereafter.

If you want a sneak preview of the RSS Feeds you can get all the details at the eMusic RSS FAQ page.

With this being completed and the recent work I've been doing creating Japanese systems for our music recommendations coming to a close, I'll be free to focus on some new things and to get set for our move into a new office here in Melbourne. We will be sharing offices with Momentum Technologies Group, a small startup building some cool tech to webcast standard video cameras.

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
