About

Welcome to my personal blog. Please see below for other places I exist on the Web.

Biog: Flanders is an *efficiency innovator* at heart, with a passion for open technologies which are *by and for* the communities he serves. “Helping brilliant people to do what they do better is the reason why I’m never far from an Open Source and/or academic research community. I love that I learn something new everyday of my life, always asking ‘how can we make this more efficient’?!“.

“Tech standards is one of several efficieny techniques David is known for (API, SDKs and tag/metadata/ontologies). Other successes have come via community (many hands make light work); sector specific economics analysis (‘rising tides float all boats’); training (translating complex technologies for broader speak and use) and marketing (because psychology is the API to the brain).
