ReadWriteWeb on Common Craft

Marshall at ReadWriteWeb, posted a story today about Common Craft that was actually published a few months back, but has been reposted at a "redux."  It's one of my favorite bits of press and called "How Common Craft Stopped Doing Client Work, in Plain English."  I don't know of any other blog post that tells our story better.

Network Icon 75 by you.Since the original story was posted in September, we've created a resource that helps organizations in need of custom videos find producers who can help.  It's called the Common Craft Explainer Network.  I wrote about it here

While we've significantly limited our client work to focus on our educational videos, we see an opportunity to play a role in the growing niche around explanatory videos of all types.  We want to help talented producers find great projects and create a community around explanatory videos.
