About Nademoya

A Jack-of-All-Trades for Kiwi businesses targeting Japanese is what I started on the 1st of October, 2001.

Since then, I have met so many wonderful interesting inspiring people and learned so many hard and soft skills. In 2016, I would like to show my appreciation to the people, who supported Nademoya in so many ways, by sharing what I have learned through the projects of Web Accessibility / Web Applications / Big Data for Small Businesses.

There is a Japanese proverb, 初心忘るべからず(Shoshin Wasuru Bekarazu), means 'We should not forget our original intention ', so I will leave what I wrote in 2001 about Nademoya below.

About Nademoya... (Written in 2001)

Where to start...

I've been thinking what to write about 'about us'. You can easily make a false world on Internet, but I'd really like to have a true world at least within my site.

Well, here is the truth about us... To be honest with you, actually not about us, but about ME. At the moment, only me, myself is trading as Na-Demo-Ya. I used 'US' throughout the site, because I have an access to Designers Network, so not really alone, and I wanted to give Na-Demo-Ya a room for the future growth. That's a reason for using plural.

Q What is Na-Demo-Ya anyway?

The name, NaDemoYa is not even a Japanese word. I just made it up with a hope; this new word made by me, will become a world recognisable word. The sound is very similar to a Japanese word, Na-N-De-Mo-Ya meaning 'Jack-of-All-Trades' in English. In fact, if you read NaDemoYa in Fijian way, you will pronounce it as NaNDeMoYa.

Q Where am I?

I am in a beautiful garden city, Christchurch in New Zealand. I think New Zealand has a big opportunity to be successful in the global e-Commerce.
