Welcome to dowe.io & thanks for visiting my corner in cyberspace.

On this siteShot of Steve

  • My blog contains some random thoughts, observations and comment on the state of (a very few) things, such as technology, philosophy, music, media and the social landscape.
  • I have listed some interests and activities under projects, because that’s the only name I could think of. This area includes project ideas, downloads, documentation and various, loosely-related miscellanea.
  • Some links to what I consider great web sites/resources There is so much on the web (and in the wider world) as a result of people’s voluntary contributions that they deserve some recognition.  Note: Some links may now be dead in this blog, especially those with photos hosted (as they were at the time) on flickr.  If you see a dead link, please do let me know!
