About me


Gravatar of Ben Clark

I am a Technical Account Manager at Acquia. My wife Maggie and I live in Sarasota, Florida.

A brief history

I went to Florida State University (Tallahassee, Florida, USA), where I earned BS and MS degrees in Information Studies. I briefly attended a Ph.D program at Indiana University School of Library and Information Science (Bloomington, Indiana, USA) where my research interests focused on online journals (blogs).

While in college, I worked at FSU’s College of Social Sciences as a web developer. After graduation, I was hired as the Coordinator of Information Services.

When Maggie and I moved to Washington, DC, I started working at Jackson River as a Drupal developer. I was eventually promoted to Manager of Development Operations.

I recently became a Technical Account Manager at Acquia.

About this site

I have had a minimal web presence at benclark.com since I registered it in 1999. It started out as a custom ASP site, then it became a blog powered by Movable Type. It existed briefly as a Wordpress blog, and later, a Drupal site. It is currently a static site generated by Jekyll and hosted by Amazon S3.

In addition to content found here, I post or retweet things with a professional focus on my Twitter account. I have a LinkedIn profile.
