Shout Out to Our FIRST 20 Clients

This throwback Thursday is the most epic to hit international education since…Troy Peden discovered mock-turtle neck sweaters.

Fashion king at the turn of the century

We’ve seen the internet evolve a LOT in the last twenty years. Long gone are the days of “‘Hello World’ Blog Posts,” counters, and having to share the phone line with your internet connection. We’ve seen the rise and falls of Xanga, MySpace, and Geocities. Remember searching the web using Alta Vista and downloading music with Napster? Or that beautiful login crunchy-crunch-spurrr-SPURRRR-spurrrrr of AOL? Ah yes, the good ol’ days, when chain letters ran the web, it was called “on-line,” and chat room conversations always started with A/S/L?

Well, we’ve all come a looong way since then.

Whatever the future of websites hold, we’re pretty damn excited to continue on the path with some of our oldest friends in the field. Super-duper shout outs to our first twenty clients, those awesome folks who took a chance on us way-back-when. Thank you for the years of continued support. Through the good, the bad, and the downright pixelated.
