Steve Dower | Musings and Mutterings


Feb 2020 - This content is mostly archival, as I am no longer working in this area. I have updated links where needed, but the text remains as it did in 2012 (revealing all my now-dashed hopes and dreams). I hope it is interesting to someone, and I am still happy to chat about it.
