Nile Heffernan

Archetypal geek, works on a trading floor in London; my professional interests are bad software, trading systems, User Interface design, and economics.

Much of what I do is written in the world's second worst widely-used programming language: it gives me an interesting 'take' on the limitations of technology in general and software engineering in particular.

My personal interests (for fun) are: Aikido, Limericks, puns, origami, West Gallery choral singing, industrial archaeology, 'grassroots' economics and Mondragon cooperatives; and I do still occasionally pick up my drawing pens and return to my roots as a venomous cartoonist.
