Ben Hammersley

Hello. I help people understand the modern world, and where it is taking us, by writing, talking, and making things.

In 2014, I have two main projects. Firstly, I'm writing and presenting a TV series for BBC World (internationally) and BBC News Channel (in the UK) on Cybercrime, cyberwarfare, and cybersecurity. That will air in November.

Secondly, I’m the principal of Onwards, Friend - a programme to develop science and launch platforms for high-altitude and low-earth-orbit science. I am also Innovator in Residence at the Centre for Creative and Social Technologies at Goldsmiths, University of London, a contributing editor of the UK edition of WIRED magazine, and a non-executive director of Digital Jersey Ltd, on Jersey.

I write books, and columns for magazines. I build things, and teach. And I speak internationally on all of these topics. Email me if you would like me to speak at your event, consult, or help you with anything at all.
