About Ed Mitchell
I am theWeb Manager for Transition Network. This means that I work online on the main site, as well as strategic and special projects work for Transition Network, like the 'Project Sharing Engine'.
Mostly my work is about how we can link up all the Transition Initiative websites out there on the web without them having to come to the main site all the time for updates and news.
I studied Development Studies way back in the early 90s and found it very stimulating but deeply upsetting; what can we do in the face of such enormous crisis?
Following that I tried all sorts of jobs ranging from the serious to the ridiculous to the extraordinary, but none quite hit the spot until the web. I have been working on the web since 1997 when I met a North London pirate radio station crew and agreed to be the studio manager for their early UK community webcasting startup, GaiaLive.
Since then I have worked as a web producer and online community facilitator for membership bodies, charities and government organisations, a full list is here.
I live in Bristol, like digging and climbing, growing vegetables and reading, bicycles and books, swimming, camping and generally being outdoors. I'm very keen on my cats, too.
