Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

comment Are there any lego base plates that are compatible with duplo?
You're right - the DUPLO baseplates don't really allow System bricks to connect, while the System -> DUPLO connection is quite good.

comment On what plane is 6912 Super Soarer based?
The lack of armaments probably comes from the fact that LEGO tend not to go in for "war" directly as well as the fact that someone else owns the license for "HM Armed Forces" based construction toys

comment On what plane is 6912 Super Soarer based?
I think "inspired by" is a more accurate question - there are a number of aspects of this model that are "similar to" but not identical to real planes.

comment Which bricks warrant an extra to be included in a set?
It's all about knowing the markdown which still works in the app ;) But yes, it's certainly more bare metal when you're in the app.

comment When and why were pieces 3651 and 3652 discontinued?
Hmm, the new ones clearly look more "realistic" if that's what you're after, but I personally find the original ones to be more useful in a "sticky piston" kind of way ;) And when you add in the bulk needed for the pegs, you're only saving in one dimension...
