Companies and individuals are stronger when they work with rather than against each other
Recommendation and curation is becoming very important on the Internet – its one of the prime functions of giant web sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
I don’t list all my clients here – there is a good reason for this. I don’t want this web site to turn into a link farm. That would be an SEO problem and I don’t want to pass that issue onto people I work closely with. Therefore my friends is not a client list. Its simply a list of companies that I have a close enough relationship to say – this company would be good on a directory.
This is then a human created directory. The criteria is entirely personal and will change from time to time – I like to keep things fresh. It just strikes me that keeping such a short list adds to the social experience that you get out of using this web site. In fact it is my long term aim to make this site more than just a place to learn about my service. I want it to have its own value too.
