Hi there, welcome to Starlifter.NZ. I’m Benet aka Dr Hitchcock, a front end web developer and creative technologist. I am currently working for Plato Creative. If you’re looking for someone to get your business online come get in touch.

Although I primarily develop websites, I enjoy taking real world problems and seeing how they might be solved utilising various technologies in new and innovative ways. Over the past decade I have researched and worked with Free, Libre and Open Source Technology (FLOSS), Internet Radio, Privacy and Security Issues and of course, Web/Internet Technology. I am in no way an expert but I am always learning 😉

My most interesting projects recently have revolved around the Raspberry Pi and the PirateBox. I used these two projects to develop a local WiFi hotspot for Rainbow Serpent Festival, an outdoor music festival in rural Victoria, Austalia. This hotspot allowed festival goers to download updated timetables, festival information and site maps; as well as interact with others via a message board.

Have a radical day,
Benet.
