My friend Saratu is helping me with legal stuff. Like, for free!
In return, I’m helping her with website stuff. Sometimes I hate money, so this barter gives me a lot of joy.
She’s trying to get Wuruwuru registered again, and of course CAC responded with “WTF” (third time now).
Looking back, I typically did consulting work in three phases.
First, the early excitement. The idea is fresh, ginger is high, there’s plenty money and little distraction, so things move fast.
Up next, the dip. Tough problems and boredom slow you down. Money runs out, ginger dies and other things…
Wuruwuru is no longer a team.
There’s no “we”. It’s just me making stuff with different people.
There’s no need to define what “we make”. It’s usually some random idea. It’s completely spontaneous.
The topics are not limited to internet culture in Nigeria. There’s no theme.
I can make whatever I want.
I need someone to design a microsite.
It’s called Cover Stories and it’s a series of interviews with people who make or collect album cover art. The first three interviews are with Niyi Okeowo, Duks and Funto Coker.
The project is essentially a landing page + 3 interactive essays.
