I'm fascinated by how we used to live, and what the world used to be like. I've been brought up with technology, modern and old, and I've managed to knit them together professionally.

I've been around computers since I was three. I used to work in an archive. I am an archaeologist specialising in archaeological computing.

I love photography and am trying to get better at it. I have a penchant for liking strange electronic and experimental music.

I run Past Thinking, a blog that covers the past, present and future. My personal blog, for things other than heritage is at tom.goskar.com/

    "Never spoken to the bloke, but found what he said at IFA in Edinburgh very interesting and, dare I say, inspirational."

    "What can I say about Tom.

    I have known him for some time now through work. He has always given me time and shown patience when I, Mr Technophobe have asked him stupid questions.

    Tom has been very instrumental in my joining flickr and has been a great encouragement to me in both my blog and my photography. He is one of my biggest critics and I admire him for his honesty.

    Tom is also a wizard with web pages, computers, lighting and photography, but can he hang a door or lay a floor? Probably!.

    Both Tom and his wife Tehm are easy going, honest, interesting and intelligent people always ready to give good sound advice. All are rare commodities in one person, to find two such persons is almost unheard of.
