BrightSite is a micro web marketing agency that evolved out of a web design business started by Director Michael McMahon while completing a Bachelor of IT at QUT in Brisbane in the early 2000’s.

Last week, Michael attended Wordcamp US in Nashville, Tennesse which was his first visit to a Wordcamp in the US. ‘It was inspiring to see what has been created by a community of volunteers and open source affecionados’. And by the time you read this, the little web business will be turning 17 years old. After so long in the industry, mostly trying to do the small things right, it feels as though the business is maturing into adulthood.
