Welcome to ClearChaos.com, Richard West's personal website.

I am a software and web developer with a wide interest in technology and an entrepreneurial streak. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science with first-class honours from the University of York.

Sometimes by a happy coincidence I'll manage to make something useful. If so you'll probably find it in the projects section. Surprisingly, some of my creations have been used by millions of people. These include the Twitter related services TweetDelete and Tweetails, and the URL shortener is.gd.
