The main thing here is my blog, where I’ve been writing on experience design, technology and anything else that interests me really for eight years now, since June 2000.
Previously this was named Blackbeltjones, and was known principly as a repository of writing about interaction design and the internet, but as I got older and the subject matter got wider, that became constraining – hence the birth Magical Nihilism.

During the last thirteen years, I’ve worked with some amazing people and been involved in the birth of the biggest news and information sites in the UK and the world, including the BAFTA award winning BBC News Online.
Up until 2007 I worked for Nokia Design, looking after the user-experience for Nokia Nseries, based out of the UK. The potential of mobile and ubiquitous technology is still a huge fascination for me. Through teaching and competition/theory work, I am exploring how digital design is permeating and affecting the environment.
