I am very glad my new job starts tomorrow, because the freelance web work I am doing has descended to the web equivalent of painting over duct-tape and Bondo. Beyond the shiny new paint, the vehicles are spectacularly decrepit. I wish I could say this is a unique problem with a particular client, but it is, in fact, epidemic and the unifying theme of just about all the work I have done for the past three years.
I'm done with clients who point to $50,000 websites and say "I want that, but I only have $500." You don't get a brand new car for $500. For $500 you get duct-tape and Bondo. I'm done with duct-tape and Bondo.
