I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

Perhaps the least interesting photos ive ever taken.


It was a great lecture. He is tremednously erudite and a very powerful
speaker, sort of reminded me of Chomsky in the way he iterates. The talk
itself was an hour followed by questions. I Asked

"Hi, My names Alfie Dennen, and we do a website called Mob... Log... UK ...
dot ... com - go there (laughter) - we license our software using a CC
license, and most of our users make use of the licenses too. My question is,
with rollout of UK licenses only scheduled for this Autumn, how much
protection does our use of these licenses actually offer."

Basically he said that it doesnt really. But it does too. In that if someone
had a case for IP litigation here in the UK, and had licensed the work using
a CC license, it would be accepted as Comity law, so what applies in the
states would apply here. But, the UK Licenses will be out this Spetember it
seems, to co-incide with the BBC's launch of the Creative Archive, Dykes
last great act as Gov. General of the BBC.

I also got to spend the rest of the evening talking to the truly excellent
Paula Le Dieu, Director of the Creative archive at the BBC.

Brilliant time, and the fact that Morgan Stanley both funded and sponsored
the event gives me hope for the creative future we all deserve.
