I’ve gone freelance. It hasn’t gone horribly wrong. Yet.
From this month, I’ve switched to a four-day week at iCrossing. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while: I’ve struggled to stop freelance taking over my weekends and, frankly, have started to get a bit shit at meeting deadlines. The other part of it is that I enjoy freelance and I don’t like [...]
Aware that neither Charlie or I have posted for some time. There’s a lot going on. The problem for me is that I’m trying not to let Hackbash become just another self-absorbed personal blog, and I’m fresh out of ideas and inspiration when it comes to writing, journalism, the internet and (dear God did I [...]

I’m somewhat consumed by work at the moment. Not the sort of ‘consumed’ where an awkward genius with a shock of white hair locks himself up in an attic to emerge seven months later with the answer to the universe, alas, but the kind where an arseload of freelance descends to snuff out every weekend [...]
