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 sites are available to sell original boxes?
Meh, I never keep the boxes once I've built the models, clearly a tad foolish ;).

comment Are these trees LEGO parts?
@NathanStohlmann - I'm unsure - we've had a few questions along these lines which were quite successful but since then there's been the recent blog post "Let's play the guessing game" which seems to imply they aren't great on the network - I'm still curious as to where these trees are from though.

comment Are these trees LEGO parts?
@NathanStohlmann I don't know if it's 100% complete, but it certainly classifies some items under different keys so the list of sets an item appears in doesn't appear accurate.

comment Why doesn't LEGO bring back old series as they were “in the day”
Hey, ask an adult which is cooler the new Joust or the Yellow Castle and I'd have to say that I really want the Joust - but that might be because I've still got all the bits for the Yellow Castle in my collection.

comment What is the average price per piece?
Interesting set of links - I notice that the "worst price per piece" sets all seem to be the ones excluded from GeekMom's research - duplo and battery powered sets.
