About David Petherick

David Petherick

David Petherick – contact me if you need help or advice

David Petherick is a writer, digital veteran and entrepreneur.

He had his first email address back in 1989. He started building web sites by hand coding HTML in 1996.

He’s been blogging since 2003, on Twitter since 2007, described by the BBC as the world’s first Digital Biographer, and has founded a number of companies, including NewsBase, and is the co-author of two books.

He lives in his home town of Edinburgh, speaks Russian and Spanish, and is married with a daughter.

He decided to launch a personal, non-technical web hosting service to allow individuals to own and control their own identity online in 2006, and branded the service ‘I own my own name’ in late 2014.

Some comments from customers about David

  • “If you want to make a digital footprint leveraging your presence, you may would consider using David’s services. I am. Besides being a creative writer, David has a background that make it possible for him to understand his client (whether the client is an actual person or a corporation) as well as using his empathy to pin-point what you actually want to say and helps you say it.” – Eric Neilsen, Writer
  • “David was one of several providers of services whom we could turn to, but because he consistently came up with the goods for us and our client companies, he quickly became our first port of call. No nonsense, no delays, no excuses, no exceptions. If only business was always this efficient” – David Cant, Albion (OverSeas) Ltd
  • “David’s on the leading edge of digital technology applied to networking and marketing. He has more rounded skills as a writer, interpreter and businessman but he stands out as someone who is applying digital tools to practical outcomes.” – Jeremy Dent, 4 Networking.biz
  • “David has an excellent way with words and a good understanding of how to communicate in the virtual world which makes sense to the reader and gets results . Nothing is too much for David and I would highly recommend him” – Norma Corlette, Scottish Throughcare & Aftercare Forum
  • “Being interviewed for The Sunday Times is a fantastic opportunity for anyone. When I was interviewed, an excellent article was published but unfortunately my name was misspelt. That could have caused problems with people not being able to find me on search engines if they wanted to find out more about me.  Having sent David a text to let him know that the article was there, he called me within an hour and offered to do what he could to rectify the situation with my name. Within another hour any search under the misspelt name on Google would meet David’s blogs at positions 1 and 2, leading them to my site.
    David proved himself to be a fantastic, generous networker by offering his services and acting so quickly, and on a Sunday. Not only that, he also showed that he is a true master of his craft.” – Andy Lopata
