Simon used to play with fast computers, very fast lumps of metal and electromagnetic launchers at Bath University - until the money ran out. He then didn't wear T-shirts and bermuda shorts at the GEC Hirst Research Centre's Network Systems Group whilst conducting architecture studies for cordless multimedia systems (they're cordless, and they're multimedia...). These day's he's the technical manager of the value added Internet service provider UK Online.
Not an urban person (unless it's somewhere with lots of bookshops), he walks, climbs and builds narrow gauge steam railways up Welsh mountains. A self-professed net.nomad, he's often found complaining about the weight of the Iron Chicken, his portable Internet site. Fannishly he reads far too much Sf, and was the accidental founder of the Bath Sf Discussion Group. These days, he just gets grabbed by masked strangers and forced to run conventions...
He blames it all on watching the Apollo-11 moon landing on a flickering black and white TV at goodness knows what time in the morning at a rather impressionable age.
As you can tell, he's also Evolution's webweaver. There's more to his pages than Evolution. Take a look!
