  • About the Author

    Armed only with a PowerBook and some fine pipe tobacco, Ben Hammersley is a journalist, writer, explorer, and an errant developer and explainer of semantic web technology. He’s also liable to spread his dirty, dirty words over at The Guardian.

    As an Englishman of the clichéd sort, Ben’s angle brackets always balance, and his tweed is always pressed. He’s not worn trousers for six months now. Ask him about it sometime.
