I'm a digital design engineer currently living and working in
Stockholm, Sweden Cambridge, England San Diego, California Sydney, Australia.
I studied at the University of Queensland (BEng) and KTH, Stockholm (MSc).
Below are a few things I'm involved in.
I've been involved with getting the Free and Open Source Silicon Foundation off the ground in recent years. It's a UK-based C.I.C aiming to foster a mature open source semiconductor design ecosystem, focused mainly on digital design IP and tools.
I'm currently involved as a director of the Foundation and help arrange our yearly conference held in Europe, ORconf. I'm also involved in the licensing committee, read about our activities here.
IRC channel logs.
I worked on the OpenRISC project where I developed CPU implementations and low-level software.
I host most of my current work at http://github.com/juliusbaxter (although, that's all pretty out of date, see the OpenRISC organisation on github for the most up to date stuff).
I also host logs for the #openrisc channel on irc.freenode.net.
I wrote my master's thesis on the project, you can download a PDF copy here.
I'm having a go at putting together a weak copyleft license for open source RTL designs.
A fork of the MPL2, the Open Hardware Description License (OHDL) aims to be more applicable to RTL code than software licenses, and make that code more likely to be used by industry. Find out more about it here.
FOSSi have a good page on open source digital design licensing which I contributed to.

I also maintain this high-impact personal home page. I really should make this some kind of proper site some day...
