Ben Ward

Ben Ward is a Front End Engineer at YDN — the Yahoo Developer Network. Until recently, he had worked in Yahoo’s Brickhouse group, where he wrangled HTML, CSS and JavaScript for fun things like Fire Eagle.

By night he put his efforts into the community, working as an admininstrator and getting pedantic about semantics. He regularly speaks at conferences on microformats, is a credited specification author and active editor.

When not trying to make the internet better he’s slowly but surely settling into his new life in San Francisco, embracing an eclectic cultural combination of imported cheese, fine wines and Rock Band 2.
