Ben Duguid works in London, UK as Head of Back-end Development for Hugo & Cat, 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 What does EV3 stand for?
@Ambo100 I'm not sure the numbers are incremental in that way - NXT started back at "1" effectively after versions 1, 1.5 and 2.0 of Mindstorms Robotics Invention System, so the 3 really comes from the fact that it's the 3rd generation (RIS, NXT and now EV3).

comment What would be a simple trebuchet design at the Minifigure scale?
I assume you're happy with a non-LEGO weight? Most elements are quite light unless you've got a few weight bricks lying around?

comment Is the visual.ly infographic information about the minifigure reliable?
Most of the facts and figures are also available in the The LEGO Group Company Profile which has a section on the minifugre. They too state only mention the "first minifigures are launched for the themes "Town, Space and Castle", and also has the "two months after" notice for Nurses.
