Long time software practitioner and coach. Have always enjoyed making things - historically, mainly wood crafts, but more recently working with electronics and re-purposed plastics. Father. Ex-Kiwi now calling Melbourne home.
Recycling PET (possibly other plastics) to create new things. Yet to do this myself, but working towards it :)
I'm involved in electronic hardware hacking: re-purposing existing electronic devices or creating new, open-source ones. A key focus is on consumption management: tracking and controlling what we use. I'm also enthusiastic about the Maker movement.
This kind of event is great as a rallying and networking event for the upcycler community. Let's get more going in 2012!
