Scrabbel
Last week I bought the Scrabble Card Game to play with Suzette. Last night we finally got around to a game...it was close until the end when Suzette pulled away....all this in spite of my inability to spell my first two turns.

Apparently according to the rest of the world farthar is spelt farther and I misspelt Chook...though I can't remember how...and i was finally left with an X which I had no idea what to do with.

Playground Finder Flink Labs - Data Visualisation

About
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
