I was born in Hereford in 1981 and I currently live in Beijing, China. I grew up in Herefordshire, Oman and Surrey; I’ve also lived previously in London and Xi’an. I attended Royal Holloway university where I read Computer Science.
I also keep a reading list, although I’m not as fastidious with its maintenance as I might be.
I leave a terminal connected to various irc networks, the most public being Freenode, where my nick is just my initials (hjst). It’s not the most reliable way to contact me, but you can try pinging me anyway if you like.
You can find me on Skype as henrytodd. If you’d like to call me please keep in mind that it’s GMT+8 here and I don’t leave Skype running, so you will need to send an email first to arrange a time.
I listen to quite a bit of radio, mostly late-night BBC shows thanks to the time difference. You can check out Pinboard for my bookmarked podcasts.
Last.fm is good for finding new music, if you use it you might like to check my profile page.
