The people who were Highway 57

Chris, Sansom, B.Mus. is a composer, but for some reason - mainly because there's no money in composing (and he loves doing stuff on his Mac) - he found himself making Web sites. He ran Highway 57 from 1996 to 2012, but has now retired to go back to music.

Back in the 1980s, as part of his evolution into a bit of a computer geek, he created the MIDI software package Fractal Music for the Atari ST (of fond memory).

He also used to work in education in Inner London, during which time he developed various handy (and vaguely relevant) skills, but he found he'd had enough of designing forms.

By way of a small diversion, Chris created the shareware font (or typeface) Mac KeyCaps, which turned out to be surprisingly useful to a number of people - though that was a long time ago.


Mary Sewell, B.Sc. (Econ) is a London Blue Badge registered guide.

Although not a technical person, Mary provided much invaluable help in matters of taste (as well as certain administrative matters). She likes this green.


Pssst! Do you enjoy other people's holiday snaps? We had a great trip to Cambodia and Vietnam in 2004. And another to Cuba in 2009...
