Welcome new readers

In the intervening 10 years since I’ve written a blog, I’ve gained some new people I’m writing it too. My sisters have both given me the gift of nephews and nieces. There are 4 of the little tackers, between 2 & 7 years old.

Also I have an extended family in South Australia who show me how to be Australian all the time.

I’m Chris Dorward and I’ve been a web developer since the beginning. Remember the mid 1990’s when to check your email you had to dial into an ISP using a modem and it cost you per minute to be online? That’s when I started creating websites.

It’s been a journey to have been a part of the development of the web, to experience and shape where it has led and where in turn it leads us.

I would never have predicted facebook or twitter. I don’t know what’s coming next. If I did I’d be rich. As it is, I’m old enough not to worry about riches.

I like technology and will always be interested in making use of it in ingenious ways to make our lives better, but I’m more interested in life with my family here in South Australia.
