Hi, I'm Rob.
I live in Auckland, New Zealand, where I do interesting things with startups and the Internet. I'm a technical analyst and consultant, usually working on the processes and user experience of Internet-based services and products. In previous lifetimes, I've done a lot of software development and network engineering.
This is my personal web site. It doesn't represent the views of my clients. It is not an authoritative source of information about cryptography, or indeed about anything at all. Much of what you will find here is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate.
I like tea and I like dumplings, and I'll spend a surprisingly large amount of time talking with you about your business plan if the conversation comes with either (or ideally both) of those. I also like whisky.
I don't use Facebook or LinkedIn, and your invitations are silently deleted by a very efficient email robot.
The best way to get hold of me is via Twitter.
The second best way to get hold of me is to send me email. If your email is broken, then send me an SMS message.
The worst possible way to get hold of me is to call and leave voicemail. If you're taking the time to do that, we don't know each other very well. Just hang up and call back.
“Leaving me voicemail is a lot like sending a letter to Santa. You hope that someone nice will get it, but he’s busy, you know? He’s got toys to make.”
