So you want to become a freelancer because where you are, it sucks! thumbnail

So you want to become a freelancer because where you are, it sucks!

You’ve had enough of working late nights, long weekends and getting pretty much nothing in return, apart from a deep resentment for the agency and people you work for.
The creative director doesn’t like your work, or, if he/she does, the account people can’t sell your work, so the client constantly rejects it…

But when something goes amiss with your “productivity tool”, your immediate concern is “Did I lose what I was working on? Can it [...]

Bottled Beauty

Belleza, beauté, beauty – an abstract construct with few, if any boundaries. Since the beginning of time, beauty has served as an evolutionary aid, an indicator of wealth, a symbol of breeding, a mark of culture and an intangible ideal for generations of men and women alike. Beauty effortlessly crosses boundaries that we ourselves dare [...]

The Death of ihaveanidea

Four weeks ago ihaveanidea almost died when the hard drive on my
PowerBook with all of ihaveanidea’s contact information, mailing lists,
