Hi, I'm Alex and this is a site on the web about me.

I'm a writer and coder interested in democracy, technology, history and structures of knowledge (I know that's all horribly general - but you can read things I conveniently have already written for the horrible specifics).

Currently I'm a Research Associate at mySociety, so interesting side projects are slower at the moment because of interesting work, but you can read old things I wrote here and see things I've built here.

You can follow me (on twitter)(http://www.twitter.com/alexparsons) - or there is a fun newsletter for periodic sets of fun and interesting things.
