Tom Coates
Co-founder, Thington Inc.

Website | @tomcoates

Tom Coates works for Yahoo! Brickhouse where he develops new concepts in social software, future media and the web of data. His most recent project is Fire Eagle – a new location-brokerage system designed to make it possible for everything on the network to become location-aware.

He’s worked for many of the UK’s most prominent companies including Time Out, UpMyStreet and the BBC where he ran a small near-term R&D team exploring media navigation, annotation and distribution.

A regular speaker at conferences, Tom also writes extensively at plasticbag.org and runs the experimental online community barbelith.com.
