For the most part my role is everything. I am currently a one man company that likes to build websites that are related to IT, Technology, and Security. My business model is web properties. I want to have various semi niche sites which attract enough attention and visitors to be a viable source of income. I currently have a few sites but only one of which is my main focus. The others get updated and get new features when I get time.
As for the web 2.0. I know plenty about it and understand it is not a complex technology. That being said, I am not a programmer. So to implement features that I really want means I have to pay someone to code it. Right now it is a matter of balancing a small budget while moving forward with ideas.
In ten years I will be working for myself again. Hopefully doing something closely resemble what I`m trying to start now.
