company is myself plus 2 other full time employees. My wife is one..., he just
likes to sit in a room and code.
Ferguson Moriyama also makes use of an extensive network of
freelancers and contractors - my "little black book" contains 10
people, graphic designers, HTML/CSS gurus, people who build servers
etc etc... anything that Ferguson Moriyama delivers. To use an

So a little while later than planned I'm taking the next steps
