My name's Thane Thomson. I really enjoy making useful things for people, and I enjoy writing too. People fascinate me, but I also love getting my teeth into a good technical problem.

So far, since studying electronic engineering at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, I've run a company with a friend, worked in the digital media industry, in research and development in the field of the Internet of Things, as well as research and development in the digital and streaming video entertainment and corporate investment banking industries. I completed my MBA through GIBS in 2011, where I specialised in studying entrepreneurship from a complexity theory perspective. My thesis was entitled Nascent Strategic Entrepreneuring as a Complex Responsive Process.

At the moment, I'm working for the Interchain Foundation, based in Toronto, Canada, helping to bolster the Tendermint ecosystem.

Technically, I've had experience in a variety of different programming languages, such as C/C++, Python, Java/Kotlin, PHP, HTML5 and Go. Framework-wise, I've had quite a bit of experience in building systems using Django and Spring Boot.
