After obtaining a degree from the University of Leeds in English and Philosophy, Nick Mailer co-authored the first book in the United Kingdom on the education possibilities of the Internet. He co-founded The Positive Internet Company, UK's premier open-source managed services organisation. He also founded the Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications and has spoken at conferences on the nexus of culture, technology and semiotics.
Since 2010, Nick has adopted a paleo-ish LCHF lifestyle, to which he nevertheless applies a multidisciplinary scepticism. He lives in London with his wife, daughter and cat.
