Hi I'm James, I'm 29 (at the time of writing this) and I live in Wellington, New Zealand.
By day I'm a software developer and work for an IT services company called Intergen. By night I fight the criminal underworld in the guise of a bat. And write fictitious internet biographies.
I love building applications and websites, something that I discovered while at university. There is a great sense of achievement creating genuinely useful applications for people and I like the constant innovation and improvement in programming languages and tools. I am always interested in learning new and better ways of doing things.
I really enjoyed studying economics at collage and I went on to study commerce at university. Micro-economics and the psychology of money; and macro-economics and monetary policy's affect on an economy are subjects that still fascinate me. I know you're thinking that that sounds incredibly boring but I dare you to read Freakonomics and say it isn't just a little interesting.
Open content and the free exchange of information is something I am interested in. I think the world would be a significantly better place if only we all spent a little more time learning about it. The next time you see Jimmy Wales looking sad on Wikipedia and asking for donations, give a little. Information may be free but bandwidth and web servers are not :)
I attended Victoria University in 2001-2003, completing a Bachelor of Commerce double majoring in Information Systems and E-commerce.
