Neil Albrock

If we said that Neil's childhood movie inspirations were WarGames and Star Wars (the good ones), you'd start to form an idea of who he is. Far from being a lightsaber wielding computer hacker though, Neil actually turned out okay. When he's not spending too many hours working, gaming or ranting about some obscure technology, he's spending time with his wife and two boys. An unashamed Apple fan, Neil hacks his code using Sublime Text and thinks that oh-my-zsh is just about the best thing ever.

Al Macmillan

Only in retrospect does AL's childhood passion for drawing only with a ruler and pencil (never freehand), love for Teletext and recreating the Channel 4 'Coloured Blocks' animation in Deluxe Paint on the Amiga make sense. He was anticipating the web before the web was a twinkling object in Tim Berners Lee'sNeXT. It was fortunate in fact that the web did come along because where else would such obscure combinations of skills be useful? One thing is clear: AL has the grids, the imagination & the vertical rhythm.

Morgan Faichney

Morgan’s route to atomised was different. He wasn’t into gaming or graphics, but football and hanging about with mates. Then in 2000 came the acceptance he was not going to be like Ralph Milne, and Magnum Opus would never get the break that led to him Bez-ing his way round the world. He undertook an MSc in Information Systems and has been working with, and loving, all things web and database since! The others made him buy a MAC - now he couldn't go back.
