My name is Ben Gillies. I'm an open source web developer currently working for Digital Science, in London, UK.
In my spare time, apart from trying to learn/keep up to date with the above list of tools/technologies, I enjoy climbing/mountaineering, preferably climbing in Scotland in the winter and in the Alps in the summer, though I'll generally take what I can get (trad, sport, scrambling, etc), as I don't tend get out often enough.
You can find me in lots of different places on the web, but those on the left are probably good places to start.
our main project while I was at Osmosoft. It's an extensible note taking application, built on the same core principles as TiddlyWiki (split things up into small chunks, give them a title and some tags, and then reuse them).
all of my projects on GitHub. Some are likely of more interest than others.
a Delicious like service built on TiddlySpace. It provides a bookmarklet that lets you save links, along with a description and tags, into your space. WIth the uncertainty over Delicious, I've now largely replaced my own use of Delicious with it (it's trivial to export your own links).
an (in progress) set of libraries desgined to make dealing with tiddlers in new projects as easy as possible. It's purpose is to ensure that tiddlers can stand (and be useful) on their own, whilst remaining easy to use together.
I've created a lot of demos and experiments within TiddlySpace. This is just some of the more interesting ones.
