About Joe Pairman

I work with structured content and semantic technology, leading the consulting and professional services team at Mekon.I’ve been shaping information in a professional context for 16 years, from communication coaching in multinational corporations to enterprise information architectures and content models.

Having lived in Taiwan for 12 years, I’m now back in the UK, living near London with my wife Vivian and my daughters Claire (born 2013), and Elizabeth (born 2014).

Resources that I like
