Chad's Photos
About 7 years ago I was very lucky to be able to get transferred, briefly, to the research facility Andersen Consulting had outside Chicago. There I worked many with Chad Burkey who was the resident Intelligent Agents expert.

The 3+ months I spent there and the time around it gave me the first taste of the technology which I have since been fairly heavily involved with.

Chad was a fairly artistic type who would spend hours photoshopping up a copper bar UI component and also ran a B&O fan site.

Anyway...its good to see he has recently moved from tech research into full time of luck Chad.

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
