There are of course many people called Simon
Jones. Last time I check
Google listed over fifty
thousand websites that made reference to someone
called Simon Jones. Doctors, Priests, Musicians, Cricketers, Violinists,
Actors, Authors, Artists, all sharing one thing in common, the name
So with such a common name I am wondering how it
is you've found your way to this page? Were you looking for me, or
another Simon Jones perhaps? Maybe you were looking for something
So now what? How far can curiosity stretch?
I decided to create a site about who
I am, however I didn't want it to
of the mill' in any way and I think this page has been the
single most commented on
web page I have ever created! Explore this page because there is more to it than

Before i Forget
My day to day blog where I write about whatever I feel like writing about really. This could span all kinds of subjects from movies to religion, politics to the environment. It's completely searchable too.
Started back in 1997 when I was working at the University of Liverpool, this
is an online collection of articles written by me simply because I wanted
to write. Originally known as 'Meanwhile Back in
Reality' the name was
shorted to 'Meanwhile' when I took up writing again after a short
This is a little website I created while on a train from Seattle
It was simply a way I could share pictures
from my trip to the USA with my friends
around the world.
While I am no prize
winning photographer I have managed to sell my photographic
services and photographs over the last
couple of years. Until recently I didn't
have a site devoted exclusively to this string of the creative bow, now I do.
Short movies made for the web just for fun. Some are dumb, others are a little

In 1999 I took a hand held tape recorder to the States in order to capture some audio
sound bites from my trip as I couldn't afford a video camera at the time!
I ended up creating this site and some 'MTV' style radio
for my friends to listen to online. I would tape the shows then edit them on
my laptop ready for my friends back in the UK to listen to that evening!
Inspired by the site above I continued making 'Reality Radio' shows
for a while. A second series in America was recorded as well as other
shows covering various
events like an eclipse and a wedding in Ireland.
MELT web studio
Thanks to help from my brother, the web design agency
MELT was formed back in
It's been paying my bills ever since despite the abundance of the 'have-a-go-hero' web designers out
there armed with nothing more than copy of Dreamweaver and an ability to
talk frugal people out of their money.
gofromhere.com and co.uk
After running surfsearcher.net for years I eventually sold that site and created this new far better search engine site called gofromhere.com.

Can't find what you're looking for? want to drill
down into the site and find something specific? Why not search
my entire simonjones.co.uk website.
The pictures on the right were all taken
by me. You'll
find more examples of my photography throught my websites.
