His book Mobile Vulgus was published by Book Works in 2001.

He works with JISC Regional Support Centres, JISC infoNet, JISC Legal, TASI, JISC–PAS, Netskills and TechDis, facilitating the sharing of good practice and helping these services to develop their strategies in order to ensure maximum benefit for the UK's HE and FE communities.
