The Name 

At one time, and it was quite some time ago, a very rarefied and hypothetical substance called "ether" was believed to exist. It was said to occupy and permeate all space, including the interstices between particles of matter.  The "ether" was presumed to be everywhere, it filled and enveloped everything. Well, fast forward to present day, and it is arguable that "an ether" like substance does exist. 

The ether of today is not gaseous in nature, or rarefied, but it is as ubiquitous. The ether of the here and now is of course the internet or more precisely, our connectedness. Be it, smartphones, iPads, tablets, laptops or whatever, this harmonic interaction allows for business, media, information, and ideas to flow freely over and through us every minute of every day. It shapes how we work, where we work, how we interact, what we do and how we live. ether media & consulting inc. can help you harness your ideas and achieve your goals.
