I work in Crossref Labs, where I do research and development of new products and services in scholarly publishing.
I'm particularly interested in how articles are mentioned across the web. I'm Technial Lead for the Crossref Event Data service. You can read the CED user guide here. I think you'll find it interesting.
I contributed to the Altmetrics NISO Code of Conduct.
I also stick my nose into citation things at Wikipedia and Clinical Trials metadata.
Music, bees, boats, something about is to do on the computer. You know.
I tweet about 40% work, 40% bees. The rest is left to chance.
But don't let that put you off. There's a 75% chance you'll enjoy 80% of it.
You can send me an email. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I used to ask a lot of questions. Then I answered a lot of questions. Now I ask a lot of questions. I used to know what my reputation score was.
Nearly everything I do at work is open source.
I wrote a MIDI file parser in Go once.
Everyone should have an ORCID ID therefore I should have an ORCID ID.
I'm on the committee of the Bagpipe Society. I'm responsible for its web presence.
I'm on the commitee of Skint Festival.
Skint is a low-cost weekend of music and dance from across Europe. Workshops, sessions, bals, lovely food, friendly atmosphere in beautiful countryside nearby.
A search engine for traditional tunes. Type in a few notes to find that tune you forgot the name of.
A bit of everything, mostly.
A weekend to last a lifetime.
The online presence of the Bagpipe Society. How many organisations can claim a site that goes back 30 years?
A bottle of Bee Restorative to keep with you at all times. Perk up a tired bee and help it get home. Only £5 a bottle.
I give shelter to a colony of bees and sometimes write things about them. Sometimes I feed them. Sometimes they feed me.
