Blair Briggs – founder
A lifelong resident, and 5th generation Fargoan (in Fargo, ND). Blair has been married for 20+ years. His wife Jennifer is originally from Ada, MN. She’s a patient partner, and great mom to their two (teen and pre-teen) children. They also have two small dogs. Blair had dial-up internet longer than he cares to remember, and he actually had to talk to a girl’s dad if he picked up the phone before her. He remembers when computers had green screens instead of color, and when video games were mostly played at the arcade.
Blair has always had a talent for quickly mastering technology. He’s a broadly experienced technology enthusiast. He proudly wears the “geek” moniker. In 2003, he took his passion for helping others, and started a small network of premium technology information related websites. In 2013, his interest in photography lead to being recruited, trained and certified by Google to become a Street View | Trusted photographer.
Over the years he’s been recognized as a Microsoft MVP in consumer security (2005-2015). Consulted Twitter with a relaunch of their developer community, and been recognized as a Microsoft featured website owner. He’s attended many technical training sessions and events. Whether helping someone with their computer, their website, or their online presence, what’s remained constant is the enjoyment he receives from helping others.
