I’m Frank Hangler, a researcher and web developer living in
sunny rainy beautiful Vancouver, Canada.
I worked at TELUS for several years, building (mostly internal) web applications. I was a member of a development team working with new technologies. Most of my projects were tools to improve internal collaboration.
In 2013-14, I studied at the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford, earning a Master’s of Science in the Social Science of the Internet (what a mouthful!). We studied the various social impacts of this relatively new technology — though really, we only scratched the surface. It was a fantastic year that grew my interest in data (Big, Open, and otherwise!), visualization, and smart cities.

The title is not a misspelling, but a reference. (Even though I’ve only gone fishing once, and didn’t catch anything, the pun was too good to pass up.)
