Hi! This is the personal site of Matt Evans. By day, I design pieces of computer for a well-known IP company in Cambridge, UK. This site is all the other stuff (when real life permits): projects and hacks, talks, a bit of electronics, a bit of code and maybe a bit of metalwork and design.

#include <all_regular_disclaimers.h>

These are my opinions and don’t represent those of any others. Specifically, they are not those of a well-known IP company.

Talks

Some talks I’ve given:

linux.conf.au, January 2012: “Hack Everything: Re-purposing everyday devices”. Slides PDF, Video on Youtube A talk on the creative recycling and re-use of electronic junk.
