Who is Beholder?
Beholder projects have been online at beholder.co.uk (now beholder.uk) since 1995.
Writer, cartoonist, programmer, and beholder
Beholder projects invariably benefit from the help and involvement of a
large number of friends and experts, including:
Cartoonist extraordinaire: René is my brother-in-pens and if we
had done even a fraction of the projects we’ve talked about over
the years then how much more amazing the world would be! Oh well.
However, René did all the illustrations for La
Séptima Bala, the animations for Fudebakudo (and some
illustrations in the book), as well as providing one of the pivotal
designs for The Knot-Shop Man.
Computer Science PhD, all-round clever chap and nice guy: Pete was the
prime mover for getting Beholder online in early days.
Another CompSci PhD, sysadmin and excellent cook: Mark has been keeping
the hamster wheels spinning on the Beholder server for longer than I care
Beholder on the Web
Although beholder.co.uk launched in 1995, “Beholder” probably
first appeared on the internet in 1985, because that was my process name on
the VAXen, way back when Pete and I were, er, exploring JANet. In those days you have
no idea how exciting it was to see somebody else's typing coming up on your
screen from exotic places as far away as, say, Lancaster. Oh, and CERN of
course... but I expect they’ve tightened up their passwords since then.
The main Beholder site (this one) is built on Foundation.
