Simon Dingle is a broadcaster, designer and reluctant product manager. He hosts (tech)5 on 5FM, co-hosts Take Back the Day and is an advisor to 22seven and AlphaCode. He recently joined the team at Curve too.

Before working with product teams on designing and building things, Simon used to write for financial and tech publications, review art for a popular lifestyle magazine, started one of the first podcasts in Africa in 2004, and worked with open software and content renegades on projects that promoted sharing and remix culture. His career on radio began with campus radio and ended with a talk radio station where he realised that broadcasting is more fun when your only boss is an audience.
