A computer scientist, Polish, grew up in the Czech Republic, now living in Milton Keynes, UK. Please call me "Jack" even though I spell my name "Jacek".
My blog has more up-to-date information and other, you know, bloggy stuff, mostly on stuff I work on.
I have profiles at Facebook and Linked In.
I'm a research assistant at the Knowledge Media Institute at the Open University (UK). My research interests are all around the Web: Semantic Web, Web services, Web architecture and Web science.
My publications — some papers and articles of mine, in PDF (page to be updated and improved).
(The icon comes from my earlier employer, Systinet, now HP.)
A great hobby of mine is riding a motorcycle — see my bike and some of my older riding-related pictures.
Casual photography is a small hobby of mine, see my pics at flickr and some older assorted pictures here.
Before the Web took over, I used to read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy books. My favourites are Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams from the absurdity department, J.K.Rowling in the swords-and-magic fantasy area and Isaac Asimov, J.R.R.Tolkien from among the serious sci-fi authors. Plus I heartily recommend Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow.
Then there are movies (Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino being my favourite directors), and finally the web: the Wikipedia, a bunch of blogs, web comics (part I, part II) (the links open about 15 new windows) and Hyena (in Czech).
