Aral’s been making things with computers since he was 7 years old.

Along the way, he dabbled in Flash, did some consulting, taught some workshops, gave a few talks, organised a smattering of conferences, made some apps, helped launch an after-school coding initiative for kids, got rather enraged by Silicon Valley’s bullshit, and co-founded Small Technology Foundation to do something about it.

He’s currently working on developing the Small Web with Kitten and Domain.
