Jim’s first computer was a pocket sized Sinclair ZX81.
After working with Unisys networks at Oxford City Council‘s Computer Communications Unit he moved (back) to York to study for a Masters in Information Systems and the Human Computer Interface, including a project with Jim Austin’s Advanced Computer Architecture group testing ADAM associative memory for applications in robot vision systems.
During the early days of the Internet (1995) he settled at the Department of Economics and Related Studies, University of York, as computing and web officer. He was involved in projects delivering systems to the staff and students of the department and units including the Centre for Experimental Economics, the Alcuin Research Resource Centre, the Health Economics Resource Centre and the Economic Journal.
In 2003 Jim set-up as a freelance consultant. He moved to our Castlegate location in 2005 and was joined by Jamie, Richard and Andy soon afterwards.
