Today marks the 25 years in Greenpeace of the person currently at the helm of the Greenpeace.org mothership – our Chief webby and self-confessed eco-geek, Brian Fitzgerald. Long before anyone had even thought about a having a website and when I was err, young, Brian walked into the canvas office of Greenpeace in Boston in the US.
Here follows a photographic record of some of his finest and most, how should I put it…. memorable moments, captured on film, for better or worse…..

Walking into a Nevada nuclear test site to stop a nuclear test
Doing a stint as an action organiser. Brian what is going on with that GP logo on the banner?
Getting very excitied about some now very obsolete technology probably sending a few kb of data over a phone very slowly
"Now David do you thing we should change this to a energy saving bulb or will people accuse us of environmental tokenism?"
Brian is a tough boss to work for, heaven forbid if you're a web editor and you get your it's, its, it is, mixed up he'll hunt you down with a water pistol and his very own peddle boat!
If all else fails, just pop on a fetching wig and get on the phone. Who ever said, "Blondes build better websites"?
And what ever any ones says, people will always love a geek:
