Self, Inc

In July this year, Mike Seyfang, (currently battling short-sighted politicians in South Australia in a medium they don’t understand); welcomed me to “Self, Inc”.

Today I created my first invoice using SQL-Ledger. After some quick learning of LaTeX; and re-learning of basic accounting rules – it’s all go!

On the SQL-Ledger side: it is an Open-source ERP that has an Australian chart-of-accounts (ready for GST and BAS). Written in Perl, which is a little step backwards; the data is stored in Postgres. This bodes well for integration with a future installation of a small CRM.

So, no longer with Adobe and out on my own. The freedom to do what I want is both scary and exciting.

Coming soon: company web site and phone numbers.
