  •  Web design as a whole is not overpriced (7+ / 0-)

    $9 million for a website is surely overpriced, but I'm actually confused about your comments claiming we're an "industry" (quotation marks interpreted as condescending) yet quoting relatively accurate figures for a website such as Daily Kos. Maintaining a website, as you mention, consists of a lot more than just making it look pretty. The bulk is back-end programming which requires very skilled computer engineers, professions that command high salaries (at least in start-up company land).

    The web design industry is as much of an industry as manufacturing and other work with your hands professions. Why the need for quotation marks?
