21stcentury.co.uk was first born as an idea back in 1995, when Clifford White – music composer and producer of the 80’s hit album Ascension – purchased the domain name with a view to creating a kind of ‘Tomorrows World on the web’. Tomorrows World had been a popular TV programme on the BBC during the 80’s – a sort of precursor to ‘The Gadget Show’ – and Clifford had enjoyed seeing where the latest technology was headed, with it’s prospects for a brighter future. Always having been something of a sci-fi geek, Clifford’s love of Star Trek and the works of Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Sheckley and Douglas Adams, Clifford quickly realised the potential of the internet as an information resource, and he envisioned the 21stcentury.co.uk website as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all things futuristic and technological, fusing articles about the latest gadgets and technological marvels, with ruminations about Science, Physics, the environment and other topics of global interest.
Well written, easy to read science related stories that make the most of the capabilities of publishing on the internet.

UPDATE: After almost two decades, Clifford felt he had achieved many of the goals and aspirations he had originally envisioned for the 21stcentury.co.uk website and, in light of the growing popularity for news sites such as WIRED and Techcrunch to satisfy the public’s appetite for gadget and technology reviews. Clifford decided to close down 21stcentury.co.uk as a Science and Technology portal in 2016.
However the 21stcentury.co.uk brand remained popular, and in 2018 Clifford decided to relaunch the website as an electronic music record label.
