Sharing is caring

We care about what we do

We know that we're an unusual breed.  It started  nearly two decades ago, we developed a passion for the world wide web.  Some of us got access via Gopher.  Others had special dispensations to access it for our work, but somewhere along the line, we were impressed and realised this is what we want to be involved with.

Our younger team members are natives.  They have no clue what it was like BTI (before the Internet).  It doesn't matter, they're also passionate, and they have decided to develop expertise in this area.

Developing expertise is no mean feat. Overnight things can change, look at Facebook, YouTube, iTunes.  You need to be able to learn on the job everyday, you need to look ahead and make calculated predicitions as to what's coming down the line.  For that reason, we have to share our knowledge and pass on information.  Where we think its relevant to you, we'll publish it here too.
