History of Justaddwater.dk
Jesper and Thomas worked together at as web developers at Capgemini, and wanted to raise awareness of usability and web standards inside the company amongst co-worker developers, project management, and team members.
After a brief discussion on the ups and downs of newsletters, meetings, knowledge sharing groups, wikis and blogs, they decided to share thoughts with the whole world and not just to be another one of those “Capgemini-eyes-only” things.
To make a story short, they decided to start this blog October 14th, 2005.
