I made my first webpage in 6th grade. It was horrible and had tons of animated gifs and blinking text, but I wrote all the HTML myself in notepad and hosted it on AOL. Since then I have written, hosted, and been responsible for countless websites. Since college I have been helping out various groups with their webhosting needs. Edgespace Colocation is an effort to standardize and codify my various hosting responsibilities.
Right now I host or help with a number of non-profit sites. I donate my time, expertise, and resources.
If you know of a business of non-profit who needs help I would be grateful if you could refer Edgespace.
