I'm Ben Pirt

A creative technologist with a lot of startup experience who enjoys building meaningful things. I trained as an architect and then switched into technology.

Over the years I've been CTO at Onzo, my own startup making energy monitoring hardware and services, and later CTO with the IoT service Pachube (which later morphed into Xively).

I designed Mirobot and I'm one half of Mime Industries which makes build-it-yourself robotics kits for helping children learn about technology. I'm a father of two, love music and cooking and am currently developing an off-grid farmhouse in Wales.
