The hybrid of a "square" computer engineer and a "hippy" tech-writer, Swiftek founder Erickson Swift once contracted for large corporations including America Online and others. Now, he prefers to work directly with end-users to make their experiences more enjoyable and productive. He is passionate and driven by a belief that technology can make life better.
In business, we don't pretend that we're not out to make money, but we have found success in building a loyal customer base through trust, rather than squeezing every penny from every project. A relaxed business model with low overhead eliminates any pressure to increase your bill or rush the job. Returning clients bring new referrals resulting in steady business with zero advertising cost. It's pretty simple, really.
In society, we believe that technological progress has the power to evolve and enlighten mankind, and that the pursuit and perfection of science is humanity's highest calling as well as the only key to our future.
Our ultimate goal is two-fold. (1) Bring high technology to the masses in ways that maximize our work, fun, creativity and community, and (2) advocate for the consumer through technical education and techno-social activism.
Powerful Knowledge (The Truth Is Out There)
Most people know that you can't trust advertisers, but what they don't know is the extent to which we are being misled. The technology boom has brought some really cool stuff into our lives, from email to pocket PCs, but how much do we really know about the technologies we use everyday? Manufacturers and service providers don't have much to gain by giving us the facts, so they don't. Much of what we hear is hype and false advertising designed to keep us ignorant and dependent on one particular brand. One of our goals is to reverse this trend and give the power back to the consumers in the form of practical understanding.
Like any self respecting Nerds, we are constantly working with and researching these technologies. What separates us from the rest of the herd is that we truly enjoy sharing our knowledge and do so freely. We think it's unethical to withhold information for profit.
Most users tend to feel intimidated by technology and may fear that it would take too much time and effort to understand, or even that it's beyond them. If this is you, we'll bet you 4 hours of tutoring that anyone can learn if they wish. For users that "just want the thing to work", we are happy to do just that. For those who enjoy technology and wish to learn more, we offer low-stress training at every experience level.
Independence Declaration (Open Standards Matter)
We believe that any effort to make consumers dependent on any proprietary product, service or standard is unethical, bad for business and a barrier to innovation. We recommend and support Open Standards and Open Source products and systems that are free, flexible and interchangeable. We encourage and help our clients to break away from proprietary systems and methods to guarantee sustainability and cost-effectiveness far into the future.
