Primarily, Heidi Angove is a geek. Out and Proud! Over the years this has meant I’ve been lucky enough to work in a couple of very different worlds. Telecommunications and IT, and the Arts and Technology sector.
Telco and IT wise, she’s done everything from managing a variety of UNIX Systems, managing a number of large scale physical sites through managing Internode’s Corporate Support team, typed ‘show int’ on way too many Cisco devices and even written a bit of code here and there. Mainly, writing code in PHP, Perl and Python, as well as hacking hardware makes her happy.
She presently holds a wonderfully diverse position as the Operations Manager for Base64, Tech Evangelist Simon Hackett’s post Internode adventure. A day in her working life might see her working on Large Scale Batteries to see the Base64 co working space site go offgrid, working with the residents, hosting technology based workshops and meetings, assisting in IT strategies for a variety of businesses Simon has an investment in and getting a little too grumpy at the state of the coffee machine.
She’s also embarked upon a social enterprise startup called “Women of Steele”
The Women of Steele deliver well specced hardware tech gadgets and tools and will deliver bespoke software to keep women Safe, Charged and Connected. Go check the range out and hear more about the caper here.
Arts Wise she’s served as the General Manager of ANAT (Australian Network for Art and Technology), been a member of a number of Boards and Advisor groups including Peer assessor for The Australia Council for the Arts, SALA festival, The Adelaide Fringe, The TAFE Governing Council, FEAST and The Border Project, made portable ‘backpack’ internet radio stations, interactive audience controllers for theatre, rebuilt old rotary phones and connected them to the internet to make audio storytelling projects and a bunch more tech based stuff
She loves art, food, books and doing geeky things with any or all of the aforementioned. If you have an interest in any or all of the above, or have a project you’re interested in developing, then drop her a line or give her a call.
