  • Saying NO to a gig? Sometimes its a good idea.
    10/23/09 - by Greg Hoy
    Greg Hoy at AListApart.com has some good points on when to say 'no' to a job, even (and especially) if cash is tight.

    Freelancers and hot-shot web agencies are only one side of the web development party. Behind the scenes of every company website, you’re likely to find a frustrated in-house developer or two, wondering why exactly they bought all those shiny books when web standards seems to be a bad word in the weekly marketing meeting.

  • Write Articles, Not Blog Postings
    07/09/07 - by Jakob Nielsen
