Computer Geeks With Personality
Computer geeks who understand your business.
We are a group who likes to have fun while having real life business and computer experience. We are practical computer geeks – meaning we do not have to have the latest gadgets and are not concerned with bleeding edge technology. We believe in the “price/performance” curve – and will spec solutions based on practical experience, not because it is a “cool solution”. With over 26 years of Computer and Server experience and 19 years of Developing Websites, we know what works and what doesn’t.
Teo Leonard, President, graduated from Purdue University with degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He did a short stint with National Semiconductor as a Technical Sales Engineer and got bit by the sailing bug. He spent several years sailing and in between worked with James River Group as a technical product manager specializing in PC and Unix Connectivity. He created the networking division for UniDirect / VarCity, a Unix software reseller who later sold out to SCO Unix in the early 1990’s. In 1993, he wrote a book on Bridging the gap between PCs and Unix(essentially about the internet, before Al Gore invented it) and in 1994 began consulting for companies for internet application and web design. We have installed and configured in excess of 500 servers, 1000 networks, and PCs of all sorts. We have built over 3000 Websites. Teo is Microsoft Certified.
Short Background on The Web Design Ninja
IT Business Consulting – the parent company of The Web Design Ninja was established in 1994 by Teo Leonard with the purpose of helping customers gain control of their computer networks. Too many businesses were dealing with over ego’d computer geeks who fully believed that the business existed because of the computer system, thus forgetting that the geeks had a job because the business was in the business of xxx. With a solid history of Computer and Electrical Engineering experience, Teo merged his business skills with his computer skills and hung out his shingle. Back then, the original slogan was “When you need a geek but don’t want to work with or talk to one…”
How true that was back then. Today it is almost as crazy with anyone being able to create a twitter or face book page and create a blog and become a computer expert overnight. We don’t have a lot of experience with these computer thingies, we just wrote our first book about the Internet about 3 years before Al Gore claimed to have invented it!
Over the years we have worked with quite a few companies on their networks or custom applications. Heck, you may have even heard of a few of them….
