Celebrating 25 Years of Innovation

Once Upon a Time ...

It seems like it was yesterday… It was May 20th, 1996 and I was living in La Jolla, California, about 2 hours South of Los Angeles. It was a Monday and at 1AM PST I registered the domain name www.surfernet.com, which was the beginning of it all. I was leaving behind years of research in theoretical physics and mathematics to fully dive, without any previous experience, into the surfing waters of software, technology and business.

I’d like to point out that this amazing journey started with an HTML version of my résumé. Back in 1996, armed with a primitive laptop and with a 2,400 baud modem connection, I used my résumé to illustrate prospective clients how they could create customized digital content for a new channel… the Internet. Of course, in the late 90s Surfernet also made millions of CD-ROMs (literally!) while the Internet speed was not fast enough to accommodate other marketing options. Back then, the year before I founded Surfernet, Jeff Bezos launched Amazon and the leading internet Search Engines were Altavista and Yahoo! Marc Andreessen was starting the Netscape browsing revolution as a spin-off from his Mosaic Web Browser, which is what I used to write and program, by hand, my résumé using HTML language… Most of the software technology revolution was happening in California, but Big Pharma was not there, so we had to move our focus to Europe and the US East Coast… Those initial years were challenging and very busy, with little hours of sleep, but we never lacked exciting moments!

Since that founding moment in 1996, 25 years later, Surfernet has created over 2,500 different software programs which have been used in all continents of the World (except Antarctica, of course 😉), and we are very proud to have had the opportunity to create and launch many of our innovative ideas as key marketing partners for the 50 largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, as well as creating some seminal technology developments for other industries.

Rafael 5.20.2021

Congratulations on 25 years Javier and Elia! It seems like it was only yesterday that we began our professional relationship. The many late nights working around the world turned that into a personal relationship that I truly cherish and hold dear. A wise married man once said that behind every successful man is a great woman, well at least that’s what my wife tells me. Wishing you continued success and another prosperous 25 years, Ralph & Maria

Richard 5.19.2021

It was around February of 2016 when I had the honor of meeting Javier for the first time. I was commissioned to be his architect for his property in South Florida. Javier had a vision and knew exactly what he wanted. He shared that vision with me and together we were able to create a fascinating and outstanding piece of architecture., an amazing structure of glass and concrete. His admiration for Modern Architecture was evident., with crisp lines and an embrace of minimalism. The design and drawings may have taken almost two years to develop, and I believe a permit was granted ending the year of 2018. Although demanding in his own right, working with Javier on this project was a rewarding experience for me. I would have aspirations that one day we may be able to collaborate once again to design and build another work of art.

I always remember the joke we had between Elia, javier and I. During our conversations there was always a moment when he moves gears from relaxed topics to business and in that moment a special flash bright at his eyes... in the moment all you could see in his pupils was the dollar sign :)
