PlayTank, Inc. has been in business for a few years, but as part of our latest IT makeover (more on that later), this is the beginning of our blog. We are an extremely small (currently 1 full time developer) software company. I guess that should, therefore, read as "I am an extremely small software company."

I've worked for software companies large and small, from educational outsourcing shops to nine years at Microsoft. I've worked on compilers, Internet tools, and banking systems. And now I'm going back to my beginnings, working on small projects that interest me, and contracting on larger projects where I can share what I've learned. PlayTank is, obviously, the smallest company I've worked for.

I'll be posting more in the near future regarding our direction, our vision, and on the day-to-day operations of running a small software company. I know there are many people out there who are looking at the small software business model. I'm hoping that communicating my successes and missteps along the way will help others, and that along the way we can help each other out.
