The Atlassian founders, Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes, are probably the nicest billionaires I'll ever meet. I have done the definitive profile for AFR Magazine - five pages and first feature in the magazine (out in print tomorrow). I'm really proud of this piece and would love to hear your feedback. If you enjoy it, please share. http://www.afr.com/p/lifestyle/afrmagazine/titans_atlassian_scott_farquhar_DA1hhVu8LaPJkQChS0OnrO

More and more people are working freelance, whether they choose to do so or are forced by circumstances. And as people start their own businesses, they also need to be able to tap into a network of expert consultants without paying the fees of a PwC or a Bain. So it's not surprising that recruitment start-up Expert360, an online marketplace for executive-level freelancers, is doing so well. http://bit.ly/1pbcD8f

Myles Sgammotta held his first red cup at a house party in Mexico at the end of 2009. Familiar from US sitcoms and frat-party movies, the red cup had become a cult item because it concealed the fact that underage drinkers were chugging beer not soda.
