turning freelance work into a sustainable design business

I'm at the point where I am looking for a job, but also doing a lot of contract/freelance work. In regards to the job front I'm not finding what I want or I find something and the position gets put on hold.

I'm trying to figure out how to turn my freelance work into a sustainable business, something that can provide me with a steady stream of revenue and income. When I was younger, I tried freelancing but didn't turn it into a sustainable business. I was not charging enough for services nor was I at a point where I really understood how to run a business (nor did I really want to).

[EVENT] IxDA Pittsburgh - Wednesday, October 21 - Real-World Research with Gist Design

This month, Gist Design will be hosting IxDA Pittsburgh and leading us
in a unique, fun, and educational event. This is one you don't want to
miss, so get it in your calendar now.

Real-World Research

Designers know the benefits that design research provides in shaping
good user experiences for products and services. But practicing
effective design research for technology products in the corporate
environment (whether for start-ups or for international corporations),
requires ingenuity, flexibility, and a sense of humor. Want to try
your hand at it?

[Iai-Members] Danah Boyd's response to the "social networks

This is exactly where the 'researcher as interpreter' gets a little troublesome in qualitative work and the positivist go wonky. When the perspective of the researcher is too far outside of the mainstream or what we often confuse with a 'position of objectivity' the validity of those findings will certainly suffer.

Security on the web: how far do we go?

My girlfriend is on a business trip in another country, and she was trying
to book herself a plane ticket back (her stay was longer than expected). She
tried to login to the travel company's web site, but she wasn't sure about
the username (picked by her company) and password (she has several), so she
failed the login 3 times. Without any notice, her account was blocked and
she was told to contact the admin/support tu unblock it.

UI Standards within the organization

Hi All,

I've been reading this post on UI Trends about questioning the use of UI standards with the organization. http://uitrends.com/2010/04/13/are-user-interface-standards-any-good/

Personally I do believe that UI standards are needed within a company but they need to leave room for creativity and change.

What's your feeling?
