"One of the things I always told people is that they have got to get their own website. I don't care if you have your own consulting business, run a 5-person design shop, or are a 57-year old director in a 22,000 person IT firm, you've got to have a place on the web to let people know who you are. A personal website is expected. It does not have to be fancy (better if it is not, actually). But it does have to tell your own unique story. Everyone is special. Everyone is different. The key — perhaps the main key — is finding what is different about yourself and letting the world know about your difference and what you can contribute. A website is one way you can communicate your difference, grow your network, and make connections across this planet."
