Ian Alexander Wood 23 May 2009 Great article. It’s nice to see someone putting a positive spin on the current economic climate, I’ve had my fill of the doom and gloom. I agree that web industries are a good place to be in a recession, other bricks and mortar enterprises are hit far worse. I was running a recording studio until quite recently and the spiralling rent costs and decreasing booking effectively closed our doors for us within a 3 month period. Freelancing as a web professional might require a bit more initiative, but it’s the area of my skill-set that has held up to the new economic conditions.
