.net: How did the agency come about? And why did you set it up in Virginia? It’s not exactly Silicon Valley or New York…
BW: 1999 was a great year to start building web products for startups, and I’d always wanted to work with my brother, so it was easy. Pretty quickly, though, our clients lost funding, along with everyone else, and we were sucking wind. We retooled to target established offline businesses, which gave some much-needed stability and sanity. Now we work with both startups and big brands.

We’re in Falls Church simply because it’s close to where we grew up and started our careers. Now, having put down roots here, we can say that it’s a great place to raise a family and run a business, and just 10 minutes from a big city like Washington, DC. With outposts in Durham, NC, and now Boulder, CO, we have similarly awesome places to visit.
