Ben has been an Linden Lab employee since early beta as a content creator (roads, the H.I.P.P.O device, the Ben-Go, etc), and later on as "junior programmer." He currently helps administrate Linden Lab's new blogging system.
He currently holds the record for most in-world abuse reports, due to the proliferation of scripts with his name on it that have a tendency to push avatars around (the trolley system in Nova Albion being one of them). As a result, he's jokingly referred to as SL's Ultimate Griefer.
He also writes for his blog, Bulk Upload when he has the time.
