About the speakers

Ian Yorston

Director of Digital Strategy at Radley College, nr Oxford, UK. One time Electronic Warfare Officer. Lecture a bit. Write occasionally. Read a lot. Smile a lot. bio from Twitter

Ian Yorston is Director of Digital Strategy at Radley College in the United Kingdom.

He has previously been Head of Science, Head of Physics and Head of Careers. The fact that Radley keeps giving him new jobs suggests that perhaps he's not very good at any of them.

Beyond Radley, he acts as an advisor to the Independent Schools Council, is a Governor of a Catholic day school and is also an ISI Schools' Inspector.

Prior to Radley he spent 10 years in the Royal Air Force including 3 years as an Electronic Warfare Officer. This involved a lot of computers and a number of wars. He also spent a great deal of time working alongside Americans. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

If he did have a youth then it was a long time ago. He spent some of it reading Economics and Engineering Science at Oxford University.

He has a weblog at www.unreasonableman.net. If you type "unreasonable" into Google he is the worldwide number one hit. His wife intends to use this in any future divorce case...
