Google doodle

Google's famous homepage "Doodles" (the changing Google logo graphics) are well known and enjoyed by millions around the world as a way to mark an event or anniversary.

But did you know that the very first Google Doodle was designed as a kind of "out of office" message? In 1998 Brin and Page took the weekend off to go to the Burning Man festival in Nevada.

The Burning Man doodle (shown above), was designed by the Google guys and added to the homepage to let their users know they were out of office and couldn't fix technical issues like a server crash.


I have been involved in the IT industry since the early 90's.

I was very involved with the start of Internet in South Africa and worked with "Internet Africa" to setup the first POP (Point of Presence) in the Somerset Mall. At the time this was the only POP outside of Cape Town.

In the mid 90's I opened a computer shop / Internet development company. After a few years I closed down the Computer shop and just continued with web design/development.

I was author for a number of years of the weekly internet column in the local "District Mail" I also gave a number of Internet related courses.

Loving the Internet and teaching I joined Netscope Training where I was their senior web lecturer for a number of years.

During my time at Netscope I taught the Adobe range of products (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash etc.) as well as basic web design and development theories.

I specialised in the development side of the web and especially database integration which is integral for CMS development.

I was sub-contracted to Gallo Images for a number of years customizing their Fotoware Image system. I was invited to Denmark to visit Fotoware and attend an international Fotoware seminar.

In later years I have kept myself up to date with many videos from Youtube and to ensure I stay abreast with technology and all functionality available on the Internet.

I assure you of my best service and attention at all times. Each of my clients is more of a friend than a client.

I look forward to hearing from you and being of assistance to you in your upcoming web adventure.
