About the buro.net
Well, me to be accurate. I'm sole proprietor of the buro.net and I find other sole traders and small businesses often prefer that to dealing with faceless agencies.
Cover for clients is arranged in case I go away or get knocked down by a bus.
My CredentialsI've been working with the Web since 1995, constantly updating my knowledge as technology has changed. I also have a BEng in Computer Science and am a Chartered IT Professional and Member of the British Computer Society, serving on the committee of the Society's Internet Specialist Group.
An Ethical Business
I pay suppliers promptly, use fair trade, recycled and local goods whenever possible, and minimise waste, including carbon. All carbon emissions are offset with The World Land Trust and as soon as feasible hosting will be moved to completely renewable energy.
Apart from the web server, all my electricity is supplied by Ecotricity who put all of the money I pay back into new wind farms. Changing to electricity from a supplier who is committed to developing new renewables is easy and yet has one of the largest impacts on your own carbon foorprint.
