I was born in Hereford in 1981 and I currently live in Shùnyì, a rural area outside Beijing. I grew up in Herefordshire, Oman and Surrey; I’ve also lived previously in London, Xi’an and Shanghai. 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.
My mobile number is +8615221061835. If you’d like to call me please keep in mind that it’s GMT+8 here.
I leave a terminal connected to various IRC networks, the most public being OFTC & 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 also find me on Skype as henrytodd. I don’t leave Skype running, so you will need to send an email first to arrange a time for a call.
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.
