See the intro above. For my or my current client I've been developing a custom reporting program, and before that I had some small filmmaking jobs (filming, editing, designing and implementing DVD menus and the graphic to be printed on the DVDs).
When I went to Freelance Camp here last summer, their motto was "In business for yourself, not by yourself", and in that vein I really like to see local computer people who are following their dreams and sharing what they've learned.
After 22 years of Jill-of-all-trades tech work -- programming, graphics, manuals and help files, UI/UX, QA, fixing web pages, tech support, hardware repairs -- for a local hardware and software company, I'm now an independent contractor.
It's very interesting and inspiring!
