Hi, I'm Steve and I like science, technology, books, films and keeping fit.
I'm Welsh. I studied Physics at Oxford and spent ten years doing nuclear physics research. Now I run Landmark Internet Ltd and I write for S21 and blog at Blog Blogger Bloggest. I'm married with two children and live near Oxford.
I failed my PhD, wrote a novel nobody wanted to publish and tried unsuccessfully to build a search engine that could challenge Google. But that's OK, you have to keep trying.
