What exactly is a ScuttleBird?

The first part of the name comes from the old Navy expression "scuttlebutt". It connotes "information exchanged informally between people standing around a water cooler." In fact, even to this day military personnel refer to a drinking fountain as a scuttlebutt.

The "bird" part of the name has to do with communication. Birds have been used since ancient times as a dependable method of sending messages over long distances very quickly.

Taking these two "old" ideas, we combined them into one new concept: A website design company that unites the power of social interraction with the speed of the Internet - an unbeatable combination for promoting your business. Spread the word with ScuttleBird.
