Dan hails from Liverpool in the frosty North West of England. The land of curly permed hair, shell suits and “Scouse brows”. Defying the stereotype he doesn’t actually have any of these. The hair is long since gone (RIP), the shell suit caught on fire and he doesn’t feel the need to augment his eyebrows with a marker pen. He’s a musician, sound engineer, writer and full time geek. His band 20lb Sounds can regularly be heard rocking the seediest dives in town to tracks like Jimmy Carter or El Bubblino. When not making music he writes, thinks and broadcasts about it via Rathole Radio, he also hosts FLOSS Weekly on the TWiT network.
He contributes a technology column to popular Liverpool website SevenStreets, tinkers with his many Linux devices, hacks PHP or Python, installs networking kit into bars (where better?) and produces professional audio for himself and others. Deeply involved in the local tech scene he runs Ignite Liverpool, Social Media Cafe and many other events. He can usually be found twanging a guitar, fiddling with come CAT5 cable or crying over the latest dismal performance of his beloved Liverpool FC. He has been podcasting since 2007 and discovered Linux back in 2001. Catch up with all his antics at DanLynch.org.
