■STEVE POTTS graduated from Manchester University with a Bachelor's degree in Applied Computing, and then went on to pursue a Master's degree at the Open University in Computing for Commerce and Industry.
Even before his start in higher education, he was working hard in the defense industry to squeeze an immense amount of failure-resistant software into what was such a remarkably small footprint that digital watches would find it miniature now.
Given his obvious disposition for being meticulous (his friends have other words to describe this), he is an accomplished technical editor who has worked on Java, XHTML, PHI, and Wireless publications, including the award-winning "Son ofWeb Pages That Suck."
His work to date has involved hundreds of applications in defense, handheld devices, smartphones, mobile Internet, and the Web.
Steve is founder of his technical consultancy outfit Free Balloon, and he holds the rewarding position of CTO at Hawdale Associates, an invigorating usability and design customer experience company operating out of Manchester, England.
