Mark Birbeck

Mark is an enthusiastic frequenter of the Academy of Ideas’ literature discussions, book clubs and Academy, having decided it’s never too late to (try to) get cultivated. Perhaps one day he’ll learn to play the piano, but for now he has to earn a living: he consults on internet software, big data and the semantic web.
