Today is another one of the days where Suzette scoots around town doing all sorts of things and I stay at home working and managing one or two active infants.
This morning she was off to the Zoo for breakfast with her mum super early and got back later in the morning. This arvo she is off with Oskar at kinder...being the assistant for the afternoon, which leaves me with Jasmine for a few hours.
Normally no big deal...I work and she potters around enjoying a free run of the house, no brother to jump, twist, and bother her.
Jasmine knows how it all works and is happy for me to look after her. So she treated me with a surprise today and took her first steps while I was playing with her.
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
