Terry Jones

Terry lives in New York and Barcelona. He hates computers but loves programming; FluidDB is a natural consequence of these conflicting passions. He has 3 great kids who, after years of patience, are asking if they're too small" to use FluidDB, and who also wonder if this is all going to work out. He owns 4 unicycles, was once a circus ringmaster, and likes books.

Terry was previously a postdoc in Zoology at the University of Cambridge where he spent time helping the WHO design part of the human influenza vaccine. He was also a part-time professor in CS at the Universitat de Pompeu Fabra, CTO of Eatoni Ergonomics in New York, a postdoc in Cognitive Science at UCSD, CEO of Teclata in Barcelona, and a postdoc and graduate fellow at the Santa Fe Institute. He has a Ph.D. in CS from the University of New Mexico, an M.Math from the University of Waterloo, and a B.Sc. in CS from Sydney University.

The future of publishing is writable

Trends of smaller, easier, and more personal content signal a shift away from read-only publishing.

Terry Jones envisons a future in which we step beyond the default of read-only publishing via traditional containers and APIs. Data itself will become social, and we'll be able to personalize arbitrarily.
