Bio
Forty-something lecturer at a UK university, working on knowledge management, the Semantic Web, hypertext and hypermedia, multi-agent systems and applied artificial intelligence. In my now-long-lost spare time, I used to write stuff for the Temple ov thee Lemur, but since none of us have time to update the site I don't feel too guilty about it. Hopelessly besotted with ias, and intending not to become a responsible grown up any time soon dad to the garklet.
