I’m Matthew Bloch, and this is my web site. Right now I’m
- husband to Alice,
- a resident of York,
- co-founder / managing director of Bytemark Hosting (a growing British hosting company with a reputation for being both careful and cheap),
- designer / herder of BigV (a super new hosting product),
- trying to stay focussed on all the above.
I also take photographs, play (and talk about) video games and go walkies with Charlie the Jack Russell.
- went to King’s College, Cambridge and studied both Classics and Computer Science less studiously than I should have;
- did a lot of grungy coding & manual-writing for PC Pro 3 so that owners of Acorn computers could play PC games of the mid-90s;
- grew up in Oxford and went to the Dragon and St. Edward’s schools.
Technical things that I am confident at doing, in decreasing order of competence:
- design and implement computer programs;
- write persuasive English;
- home improvement, with drills and pots of paint;
- speak French;
- form legal opinions.
