In the last couple of weeks two people I know have made the jump into the independent world and I think we'll all be better off for it. Both are focused on the social side of the web and bring with them a ton of real world experience.
At Antâ€™s Eye View we concentrate on providing as many services as possible within a very small niche, namely online and offline social connection between company and consumer.
Joshua Porter at Bokardo has become one of my favorite bloggers - he consistenly has pertinent, informed and smart things to say about social design. Josh recently created Borkardo Design, where he'll put his smarts to work. Here's how Josh described his services in a recent post.
Iâ€™m going to offer the exact services that I write about here at Bokardo: Interface design and strategy for social web applications. For those of you who have read Bokardo for a long time, nothing that I offer will be a surprise. Iâ€™m simply putting into practice what Iâ€™ve been preachingâ€¦so to speak.
Welcome to the independent world Josh and Jake. I'm sure you'll do wonderfully and I hope we can find ways to work together.
