Web was never so meaningful to us before born-leaders came in picture. Although freely accessible, a very few people dared to master in them. They did something what others could never think but follow. Yes, we are here to introduce masters of advanced web-technology.

Today’s web industry and its rampant commercialization is a gift from these geeks. They connected people to people, people to business, Business to people – all ways of social and business communication.

As of today Google, Yahoo & Facebook – these three are the most popular gifts of the era. Those who are somehow associated with Web Technology, Web Marketing and Internet should know about these pioneers. They are worth a tribute from us.
