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

I'm currently working at Flipboard, where I lead the Vancouver Data Products team. Previously, I led backend development at Zite - where I wrote Zite's news recommendation engine as well as a bunch of other backend services.
