Hi, thanks for visiting.
For readers who don’t know me already I’m Chris Swan – a 40something bloke living in the UK. When I’m not working or blogging I like to spend my time shooting at stuff, riding/driving fast vehicles and throwing myself down steep inclines covered in snow. I also enjoy good food (and cooking it) and good wine/port/bourbon (in fact pretty much most things that taste nice with alcohol in them). I’m a keen fan of (home) cinema, prog rock and SciFi.
I have had a keen interest in technology since being a small kid, and when I left the Royal Navy in 2000 for a career in IT with a .com startup I lost a hobby and turned it into my day job. I’ve worked as a technologist to bankers and a banker to technologists, with my present role emphasising the former. I tend to be a jack of all trades, and try to be master of some, with security, consumerisation, mobile and cloud computing being the hot topics of the moment.
