Simon Williams trained as an engineer, but has been a technology journalist for 25 years and has written for and launched magazines for a number of newsstand and online publishers. He has been freelance since 1990 and now concentrates on hardware and software reviews.
It's a bit too nerdy to claim a passion for printers, but he still gets unhealthily excited by new innovations and design tweaks. He waits with anticipation the first inkjet page printer, which has been 'just over the horizon' for the last five years.
When not squeezing text and photos out of all-in-ones, he writes poetry and sings folk. And yes, he does wear both sandles and socks in Spring and Autumn, when the climate's intemperate.
