A quick jaunt over the pacific and back, has given me some new perspective on what exactly is going on in the rest of the world as far as web development is concerned. Having just gotten back from Korea, I find I see it through a different colored lens this time.

Oklahoma is a pretty small environment in which to run a Web Design & Development shop. Having been around in some form for the last 25 years gives us an edge in that department as we have lots of history, and track record to fall back upon, but that doesn't mean that some of our competitors don't do equally well. The difference, I think, is how we go about keeping our customers.
