Hi, I’m Jason Lasky and I have been living in Byron Shire since 2007. My work is part of my lifestyle. I feel very fortunate and grateful for my family, friends, social and business community. I love working with people and organisations, to help them realise their aspirations.

I began designing websites as an extension to freelance desktop publishing in the late 90's. The 90's was an exciting time to introduce people to the digital age and the World Wide Web. I gathered a listing of my clients and pulled together some useful information to create a local directory. A decade later, I returned to creating websites, when I moved to Byron in 2007 and discovered WordPress in 2008.

It's a pleasure to be part of the evolution of OpenSource and more recently the online social web. I feel great satisfaction making a difference to real people and a WordPress website makes it so easy.

What I do - Web Design Process

The benefits of OpenSource

  • How can a quality website package start at $645, while some web designers only start at $2,000?
  • The OpenSource & WordPress Community have created all the amazing code and share it.
  • The savings of using OpenSource allows for more budget for copy, photos, video, graphics & SEO.
  • OpenSource gives you a world of options and support - unlike proprietary software development.

The benefits WordPress

  • I prefer WordPress, one of the most popular and easy to use web site platforms available.
  • WordPress was initially used for blogs but has evolved in to a Content Management System.
  • WordPress allows you to easily edit your own website content, media and page menus.
  • As the website owner you provide the content and can add more pages and edit existing ones.
  • WordPress has thousands of beautiful themes to browse and useful plug-ins to choose from.
  • I provide a growing list of recommended WordPress plugins and a short list of default plugins.
  • I recommend a list of Free & Premium Themes to find something you like.

WordPress Web Hosting

  • Some Australian Web Hosting providers are still over charging compared to international providers.
  • Since 2001, I've chosen ICDSoft Web Hosting, with server centres in Europe, North America and Asia.
  • I recommend ICDSoft hosting for reliability, speedy quality support and customer satisfaction.

Mullenweg, of course, is only one of those speaking out publicly about the Apple tax and the company’s uneven enforcement of its rules. Yesterday, a group of major news publishers banded together to ask why Amazon, and not them, should get a sweetheart deal that allows the giant e-tailer to pay 15 percent instead of 30 percent for Prime Video. And all of this, of course, is happening in the shadow of Epic Games’ gigantic fight against Apple, one that Apple responded to this very afternoon, complete with a cache of emails from Epic’s own Tim Sweeney.

Hey Apple, it’s time to reduce App Store fees!
