About Thomas

Thomas Clowes

My name is Thomas Clowes.

I am a 32 year old software engineer from the United Kingdom.

I own and operate Double Negative which builds multi platform web applications like:

  • DoubleNegative.com - A platform for event photographers to manage their business. Facial recognition, number based search, payment integrations etc
  • Running.org - A running race directory, and selection of useful running tools.
  • TrainingPlan.com - Our training app to help keep you accountable, and help you to achieve your running goals.

I am a big fan of PHP, even though many hate it. Used well, it is extremely powerful.

I build a lot of front end things with ReactJS.

I know a lot about domain names, and the domain name industry. In a previous life I worked at what is now Uniregistry (which is now owned by GoDaddy). I helped build what is now their market place as well as their now closed Affiliate Program.

I use this blog to write about things that interest me. I discuss a wide range of subject areas, not limited to software. The tags functionality is your friend :)

One of those things is running (as you may have guessed by now). I am a marathon runner. I like to post about my training and targets. My current 'big' targets are Comrades 2022 (after the 2020/21 editions were cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic - boo !).. or Tomrades (as I like to call it).

I'm also running the Chicago marathon in October 2022, but we will get the big one out the way first.

Thanks for visiting !
