John Kirriemuir has been an independent researcher since May 2001; he now specialises in the evidence base for the effective use of digital games in climate and environmental education, learning and teaching.
Previous to this, John worked for a range of digital library projects, services and centres, including UKOLN, the IRLT and the CDLR. John was the web editor of the first ten issue of Ariadne, back in (the day of) 1996 to 1997.
Though now far removed from the library sector, John still uses the public libraries of whichever country he is in. His current multi-year project involves deciding, based on personal experience, which is the best bakery-café in Scandinavia.
