Technology with a human touch.

Who we are

Hi, I'm Dan Sisson, the owner and persona behind Layer 8 Technology. Formally founded in 2003 but grounded in years of tinkering and professionial experience, this company is my ever-evolving love letter to technology and the internet. I was fortunate to be coming up in the midst of the dotcom boom; getting involved in a lot of early internet culture and riding the wave of transformation ever since. This unique journey has not only provided me with a front-row seat to the rapid evolution of the internet and tech industries but has also ingrained in me a deep understanding of both its challenges and immense possibilities.

From the early days of dial-up to the current era of cloud computing, my experience covers a broad spectrum of technological advancements. This extensive background enables me to bring a seasoned perspective to application development, systems engineering, cloud infrastructure, and network infrastructure, ensuring that the solutions I provide are both innovative and grounded in practical experience.

My passion for technology is matched only by my commitment to demystifying it for my clients, helping them navigate the ever-changing landscape with confidence. This is the root of the company: layer 8 is often added as an unofficial topping to the OSI systems model to think about how a human interacts with a computer system.

In a world where technology continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, I remain as enthusiastic about what's next as I was on day one. Let's explore the possibilities together.
