With a background in community media, he was part of the team that launched the indymedia citizen journalism movement.

Jacobs enjoys creative conversations, folksonomies, folk-musics and fragrances, loving to listen to the back-stories of people, plants and animals. His other passions are an experimental arts practice and teaching advanced media production. His current research is into new co-creative media forms. – compiled from the ABC website
