Gisborne and Rotorua Web Design - About Us
EC Web Sites are a team of dedicated web site professionals led by Russell Holland - Director of WebFoot Publications Ltd
We are committed to being at the leading edge of Web Based Marketing & Web Site Design in the realms of the Internet.
Our team have a diverse range of New Zealand and International experience on and off the Internet with an internet company history going back to 1995 and a computing history going back to 1988.
So cast your mind back - when did YOU first use the Internet...?
Russell's experience goes back to before Telecom Xtra - anyone remember Xtraville...?
It goes back before Clear.net.nz (now Telstra Clear) - they beat Xtra to the web by 6 months or so,
Even before Microsoft with MSIE - and even before Netscape when a guy called Marc still worked on the Mosaic browser - Russell was using the web through Compuserve in 1993 & 1994 and then started creating web pages for a small ISP in late 1994 & started commercially (actually getting paid for the work - yehaa) in 1995.
So how many internet years are in a human year...?
We have watched the rise of social media during the latter years of the "naughties" and keep up to date using the latest spocial media and web 2.0 tools.
