Peter Cooper

petecooperDesert Island Geek welcomes Peter Cooper.

Pete Cooper spent much of his youth in front of and inside computers. His fascination with making things go faster than they were supposed to turned out to be expensive and time-consuming. The smell of burning silicon and PCB became too much to deal with and he made the switch from PC to Mac in 2003.

Since then, he’s been a smug Mac user and recently became entangled in the murky world of British podcasting, something he holds host Neil Dixon partially responsible for. Just over one year later, he’s been involved with an increasing number of podcasts with both his wife and other people, most of which seemed like good ideas at the time, but then something more shiny came along and took priority.
