Personally, I dropped out of university in the late 90s after finding studying Computing with Management was way less interesting that all the freelance web development jobs I was being offered. From that point I worked in a lot of web design agencies as a developer, and then in 2006 took a job at Yahoo! in London, working in Search R&D.
I was never a very good employee. I didn’t know why until I joined up with Rachel as a partner in edgeofmyseat.com. Rachel and I can discuss and idea in the morning and ship it in the afternoon without needing anyone’s sign-off - we can do our own thing based on our own judgement. Sometimes we’re even right!
Anyway, that’s me. Pleased to be here.
