MATE! Aussie Web Definitions

Irwin Hau | Creative Inspiration

For those of you aboard, we don’t ride to work or school on kangaroos and no, reptiles and poisonous animals don’t rule the land – though we do have a beautiful country! (Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi). Anywho, with so much web speak, online terms and IT geek speak floating around, we thought we would share a little bit of lighthearted Aussie culture with you. (courtesy of a client of ours):
