As an individual that’s been fully employed since 1997 I regularly wonder what it would be like to set up on my own, whether I could make it work and how others have managed.
Going it alone is something I’m thinking about more and more often. So I thought that to educate myself, and others who have the same ambition, that I’d ask some individuals within the community to answer 10 questions on the subject.
I’ll be publishing the views of these individuals over the next week or so, but first let me introduce those who have been so kind as to take some time out to answer my questions.
I know Darren from my time at TMB where he got collared into writing an ASP application to collate and output high scores for a Video game we were developing for HP at the time. Lots of fun.
To be honest I wouldn’t say that I ‘know’ David. However I did link to his site and he replied to my email and said “I’m up for that”… so I guess that’s fair enough.
I suppose I’m what you’d call a ‘virtual friend’ of Johns. I’ve never met him or even talked to him on the blower. I did email him a few times though, and he was nice enough to write back.
Well… I’m sure you all know of Mr Hicks. He’s done all sorts of neat things and seems to be pretty respected around these parts.
So, that’s the feisty five. Keep your eyes peeled. The first answers will be published shortly.
