One of the blog posts (Skeuomorphism and the UI by Downer, C. 2012) that used to be hosted on the Realmac Blog is an oft-cited source of information regarding skeuomorphism and UI design. Published papers feature this work as a source, notably Tom Page’s academic article also on skeuomorphism and UI design. Below is the citation given in Page’s work noting that your blog hosted this source. It would be in service to academic study for this article to be made public once more. If not on your site, I suggest you give Downer the right to publish the article independently.
