I am cycle touring in Latin America. I'm starting in Mexico with the general idea of going to Patagonia. I'm calling this trip Cycle Who.
I have attached a solar panel to the bike and made a charger for my laptop so I should be able to write even when away from civilisation for a while. I'm also making a keyboard for the bike handlebars so I can write with an Android phone while on boring roads. It was only half made before I left but I've got tools and hopefully the parts I will need to finish it.
In Winter 2011-2012 I went to the Canary Islands to try and hitch a lift in a boat to South America. I didn't get there but liked the Canaries anyway. Blog posts covering this adventure are tagged "serbla".
See also photos on flickr, and my twitter account for updates.
Recently I have been building a technomadic bicycle. This is a bike fitted with electronic and computing gadgets to enable a lifestyle of travel while remaining connected with technology. Off-grid with solar power and online when needed. I'm now on the road but still working on it.
I occasionally take on freelance software development jobs. Previously I have worked as a software engineer at internet startups on distributed systems, machine learning, and both front and back end web development.
I'm starting to put code on github. I use Stack Overflow as anm.
