    Sounds just like a software developers world. We could have the same: People think systems are done RAD and it is sooo-easy and our customers think it does not cost anything because of FOSS and our friends think that we are sooo-tech and intelligent that we make a lot of money and out moms think we are sooo-intelligent that we can solve all problems in the world. What we actually do is that program lousy and non-inspiring systems so that you photographers could put your photos and your blog into the web…
