    Thanks Maire for the bright idea to approach Arthur and company and seeing it through. Electric Book Works/Mousehand for getting it together so fast. It's great to see how receptive this country is to digital media. It makes you realise that people's computers are as part of their daily lives as their belt or their shoes!

    It is also exciting to see how the culture of agency has taken off in S.A. Many of us have been desperate for someone to cover the commercial side of creative work. I, personally, am loving the luxury of working with someone as passionate and proactive as Maire. Thanks again!
