My name is Ben Frederickson. I'm a software developer living in Vancouver BC.

Up until recently, I worked at Flipboard where I led the Vancouver Data Products team. Before that, I led backend development at Zite - where I wrote Zite's news recommendation engine as well as a bunch of other backend services.

I occasionally publish blog posts at To get notified about new posts you should follow me on twitter or subscribe to my RSS feed. My Flipboard account also has a bunch of other interesting articles that I've found - if you like anything I've written here you should check it out.
