Hello. I am John Patterson. I don’t know what this blog will be yet so I can’t say too much about why I created it. The reasons circle around things like sharing ideas, promoting my work, tinkering with technology and generally just having somewhere to go to put things.
At home, I am a husband and parent first. After that, I enjoy gaming (think: Halo), movies (think: Sci-Fi) and anything a little bit geeky (think: Anything). I try to do a bit of creative writing if I ever get the time.
At work, I’m a ‘Research & Intelligence officer’ for Blackpool Council. This covers a wide range of activity from data analysis to research design. I also do some work with Desktop GIS and other mapping software, like InstantAtlas and Google Maps.
Another thing that is worth knowing about me is that I have Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative muscle condition, so don’t be surprised if this is touched on now again.
Of course, like everyone else on this planet, I am also more than just the above summation of my parts.
Feel free to get in touch, Say “hi”, or just generally prod me for a reaction. I can currently be found on Twitter: @JonoPatterson
