* His interests include art, music, political activism, performance, and free software. Several of these interests are reflected in the fact that, in 2004, Simon was the organizer of "Your Machines", a series of workshops and discussions about Free Open Source Software that were held in the CCA (Centre for Contemporary Arts) in Glasgow. Tutorials covered the use of free software in such activities as audio and video processing, and in streaming technologies that could allow, for example, musicians in different countries to work together online, in real-time, in live audio performances.
