Freelance to Agency

Jeffrey Zeldman has posted the audio recording of a SXSW Interactive 2009 panel named “From Freelance to Agency: Start Small, Stay Small”.

I love when Jeffrey imitates my French accent (at about half the podcast). ;-p

The story is more complex than what transpired there, but there's another interesting bit to it. During the course of this project, Jeffrey told me this: “After this is finished, you will move out of this company.” The fact is that I did, and this big redesign — not just the work itself but the thought-provoking exposure to this bunch of ass-kicking talents — played a very significant role in giving me confidence to go freelance.

Jeffrey (and Doug, Adam, Brian, Erin) you kicked my ass in a challenging but very productive way. Thanks!
