I have a fantastic wife, and wonderful daughters born on 21st February 2006, 24th August 2008 and 21st April 2011.

I read Mathematics at and am a member of Cambridge University, where I was President of the Trinity Maths Society, but my PhD in AI at King's College, London, where I had previously won an award for oustanding service to the College, was interrupted by the chance to start Eidos Interactive.

In 1990, I co-founded Eidos Interactive, the fastest growing company in the 1990s, which grew to over £1,000,000,000 market cap the year I left the Board. My original investment grew 1,000,000 times (after tax) by the time I sold. This provided the start-up capital for Forbidden Technologies plc, which successfully floated in 2000 (and was the best performing new share issue in the world that year).

Some of my patents are listed here.

I have an honorary DSc from Bedfordshire University.

I am currently CEO of Forbidden, whose main product is FORscene. Forbidden also makes Clesh.

My father's Wikipedia article is here.

There is a Wikipedia article about me here.


My hobbies include classical chamber music with friends, orchestral playing, You can hear my orchestra here. Go, new technology, and making videos. You can subscribe to my video podcast here.

I am often quoted in the press, for example here on the BBC website and here on an industry magazine website.

I also enjoy Wikipedia, where I hope to become an Administrator.

A Barnstar!
The Barnstar of Diligence

I, CComMack, award you this Barnstar of Diligence for your excellent work on cleaning up light rail. It has been said that an article achieves NPOV when you can no longer tell what the opinion is of the person who wrote it, and that is now true for light rail for the first time I can remember. Many thanks. CComMack (t•c) 17:58, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
