The BesBox.com Project, formed as a casual project around 2005, and consists of a
two-part name formed from the words: Bes and Box.
Box refers to my original home entertainment system that I designed with customer hardware around 2005 and housed inside a static model racing car. That project I enjoyed, it certainly looked cool and interesting with the custom lighting, unfortunately though, the custom hardware was a little outside most pockets and I eventually mothballed the project.
The Bes part refers to the ancient Egyptian god Bes (I have a life long interest in Egyptology), a god of home life and fun - the core of what I want my projects to be aimed at. Together they signify a project aimed at enjoying life which technology can assist with, without getting in the way.
The casual aspect of BesBox had remained as such for many years, off and on, I would dip back in
from other projects and of course work. Now, and that is from 2019, after a very long circular route
I have decided to reinvent BesBox as I think it's time has come - at long last!
My personal background has been in IT since the early 90's, moving through development teams to management and business analysis/integration projects in a variety of industries. Throughout my career I've encountered bad technology, and technology that was just for the sake of it, and being tasked to make everything work, and work seamlessly for those businesses. Its a challenge at times but it's one I love, for the best human-technology connections are ones that are intuitive.
