Worth Keeping :
A Collection of Archival and Experimental Pages

Research.RyderDesign is a place for my unconventional, noncommercial and experimental webthings. It's a companion site to my main website at ryder design.  

  It's the only place on the web to find my full authorised biography.

  As well as early thoughts on the galactic republic.

  Plus a books page for the book-people.


Responsive versions of favourite pages from my archived website.
