I’m Jim Lynn. I currently work as a software developer in BBC Future Media. At the moment, I’m working on Silverlight projects, including iStats Analytics, an internal tool used to visualise usage of the BBC iPlayer. I’ve also developed some prototypes using Ordnance Survey mapping and Silverlight Deep Zoom. I gave a presentation about this project which you can see here.
My previous project was the DNA social media engine, which I initially developed for Douglas Adams’ company, The Digital Village, and which was subsequently bought by the BBC. It’s used all over the BBC, to power sites like h2g2, message boards, and blog comments. It’s written in C++, C#, SQL Server, XSLT and some vestige of perl.
This is my personal blog, and at no point am I speaking for or on behalf of my employer. All opinions are my own.
