We started the ‘debrain’ website in 2007 simply as an online repository of facts that we learnt throughout the years. The initial debrain logo was an inspiration from my girlfriend at the time, which has proven difficult to change as she is now my wife. Anyway, the site grew slowly over the last 8 years, briefly reaching the front page of Google searches for the term ‘amazing facts’ in 2009. Over that time, we amassed a total Google+ following of about 48 people and even had one day when we reached over 5000 views. That was only because ‘debrain’ was featured in a small independent London newspaper earlier that morning. Armed with questionable html skills, a demanding full time job, and poor understanding of social media… it really is a wonder this website survived for so long. Financially, debrain is propped up by whatever advertising revenue we get. During those long dry spells which lasts a good part of the year, it is otherwise paid for in full by its illustrious webmaster. This allows us to print whatever the hell we want.
Don’t you like the logo we made together?
