Well, we’re a team of four staffers and a couple of helpers. Some feel a bit reluctant to be out out. I suggest we all individually say hi in our own way.
Me then. I’m James. I started Folksy with a chap call Rob in 2006 (we didn’t launch until 2008) after leaving the BBC where I worked on developing apps and web services. I still run the company, working part-time. When I’m not working on Folksy I design software and applications for clients. Over the last 15 yrs I’ve accumulated 3 boys, 3 bikes, 2 cats, 1 dog and a wife, Emma, and I live in Sheffield on the edge of the peak district. Craft - and particularly craft skills - mean a lot to me. Having skills to make things yourself seems like it’s been in the decline since I was young (now 43 so that was a while ago) and I want to help people with those skills to make the most of them to encourage others to learn.
This is nice. What do you all do, behind the invisibility cloak of the web?
