Does anyone happen to know how to get in touch with Owen Hill of Microbee
fame?

I know someone who is trying to find him for an Australian electronics
industry documentary.

Thanks.
Dave.

who helped with leads.

Owen is doing well. He owns a small environmental company specialising in
wastewater/sewage treatment and control. Naturally, Owen designed the
electronics associated with the monitoring and process control for the system. I
don't think he used a 'Bee for this function though :-)

See page 7 (HILL'S VIEW OF AUSTRALIA'S BROAD HORIZON)in this 2004 federal
government publication to catch up with some of Owen's exploits after the 'Bee.
