Hello.

I’m Paul Rissen. I’m currently a Data Architect for BBC News Online, but I also teach, speak about the Web as a creative medium, dabble in Python, Flask and RDF/N3, and write fiction. I specialise in linked (and structured) data, am an advocate for open data, agile development, user experience, information architecture and progressive enhancement/adaptive design. My main area of interest is in narrative and its’ application on the fundamental building blocks of the Web – URIs, hyperlinks and REST. I also love Doctor Who.

Here’s some things I’ve written recently. There’s also my newsletter, Write Like Nobody’s Reading, which you can have delivered straight to your email inbox – it’s short pieces of fiction, (almost) every day.
