You may remember 3XE or my name from the Allow 3XE to join CoTech Loomio poll a few months ago. Thanks to those who commented and to those offered suggestions/support in the related e-mail thread.
To recap, 3XE Ltd is a web application development company specialising in geographical information systems. I have always had the intention of growing the company horizontally with worker co-ownership and co-management but, by some admission of failure, I am still the only employee-owner after almost five years.
As for me: I operate 3XE out of Cornwall, UK and it is very easy to have a chill lifestyle down here – which may be part of the reason for the slow company growth! Perhaps like many of you here, I enjoy business but am not really about capital. I have also a few hobbies, some of which have been a little neglected since starting the business:
- Coding side-projects (github)
- Promoting horizontalist thinking and class consciousness (anarchi.st)
- Photography (myspace – yes, it still exists!)
- Bedroom DJing (mixcloud / soundcloud / last.fm)
- Boardsports (skating, surfing, skimboarding, etc.)
N.B. hit the two link limit, could an admin remove the above from the code block please? done]
As with my hobbies, I have also been neglecting online communities more than I’d like since starting the business. That said, I really hope to get sucked in by this one because those of you I have spoken to so far seem really on-top of your stuff and it would be great to get to know you all better. I get the vibe here that we all may be cut from the same cloth
