Disclaimer: Digital Praxis is an independent operation that has many clients: some longterm, some short. Either way we are paid to perform a service that has a positive impact on our client's operation and for which we get paid. A historical client list can be found on the company website and anything posted on the TIG (or elsewhere) should be read with this in mind - and with the incredulity usually associated with big fish stories and alien abductions.
