Hello. I'm Tom. I make things.
I bodge things together using lines of code, a load of video editing tools, and a few metres of network cable.
I have far too many red t-shirts.
On stage and at conferences, I talk about the internet, about the accelerating pace of change, about how to deal with social media, and occasionally about tea cozies. I've also been an occasional talking head on Sky News, ITV and Al Jazeera English, and I've occasionally written for the Guardian's technology blog.
I was one of Sky 1 HD's Gadget Geeks, building ridiculous things that even manage to work sometimes.
I once got in trouble with the government for mocking one of their web sites; I was a Girl Guide for insurance reasons a couple of years ago; and I was a part-time pirate for most of my adult life.
Oh, and I once got five gold runs on Blockbusters.
