This week theopenworld.com celebrates it 7th birthday

Posted in theopenworld.com

Theopenworld.com was founded back on September 4th 2000 by Daniel Bartosik. Daniel was still studying at school at the age of 15, and was already in the business of giving IT support and making websites for local businesses and companies in West London [UK].

theopenworld.com 7 years oldHe had always been fascinated by the Internet and its potential. Whilst most websites were experiencing massive growth and over inflation, the schoolboy was quite happy to continue creating his site as a pastime.

In 2003, Daniel completed his studies and had already landed himself another job in radio media and journalism. At the time, Daniel had decided to discontinue working on theopenworld.com and decided to close the site. Daniel listed the domain for sale, however, the prospective buyer failed to pay and so he decided to keep and renew the domain name for another year.

It was only until 2004 that Daniel decided to leave media and return to doing IT support and reinventing theopenworld.com brand. On January 4th 2005 a new version of theopenworld.com was launched, and as a breakaway, he decided to move his technician business to a separate domain, but still very much incorporating theopenworld.com into this business.

The purpose of theopenworld.com was to make users digital lifestyles easier to understand, more informative, and more obtainable. Daniel had recognised that whilst younger generations where happy to absorb the Internet, demographics of 35 and up suggested otherwise.

Overtime, more features where added, in particular a search engine was created, bringing together some of the Internet’s most popular features: Google search, Amazon, iTunes and YouTube. A toolbar was created as well incorporating the quick search features of the search engine.

Today theopenworld.com celebrates its seventh year and continues to stride forward with the quality technologies that the Internet provides.

The rest, as they say, is history.
