My name's Dave Pattern and I'm the administrator for Huddersfield Exposed, which means I get to foot the web hosting bill ;-P
I've been a web developer since 1995 and currently work as the Library Systems Manager at the University of Huddersfield.
My own interest in local history was sparked by Gordon and Enid Minter's Discovering Old Huddersfield, which Enid has very generously made freely available on the Huddersfield Local History Society web site:
As well as spending far too much of my spare time adding content to this web site, I'm also currently working with the Huddersfield Local History and Huddersfield Civic Societies to help put the "Buildings of Huddersfield" project online.
If you want to get in touch with me, I'm on Twitter (@daveyp) or you can drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
