BIO: Clay Shirky

Clay is a provocative new voice on all things Internet: economics and culture, media and community, and the open source movement.

Basheera Khan is a user experience designer based in London. A former journalist, Bash’s first technology reporting job was with ITWeb  in 1998. She moved to Wales in 2001, joining Swansea University’s computer science department to edit itwales.com, an EU-funded project to improve Welsh SMEs' take-up of business technology. It was here that Bash developed an interest in UX, particularly around information architecture and process design.

In 2004, Bash founded Ping Wales, an independent news site covering the Welsh tech sector. Although it had a healthy reader base, Ping Wales proved commercially unviable and the site closed in 2007. In 2008 Bash moved to London and started blogging for TechCrunch Europe and the Telegraph, among others. She began the transition from journalism to UX in August 2009. These days Bash divides her time between client projects and bootstrapping a new tech startup, PlayNice.ly.
