Hi, I'm Phillip Pearson. I'm a software engineer from Christchurch, New Zealand, now living in San Francisco. Since 2005 I've been working for Bay Area social media companies:
- Ning - topic-centric social networks
- Yahoo! - Fire Eagle location platform and Facebook app
- BBM - white-label social network software

In the early days of the social web (2002-2005), I made a bunch of things:
I also have some development notes to share from that time.
