Have you ever worked with a designer? If so, you understand where I'm coming from. They have a wonderful perspective on the world, as the put-upon world-weary souls who must deal with the soulless MBAs in their midst. They get to take the holy ground of "more is not always better -- more is never better" and countless other eternal truisms. They're the Siddhartha's in our midst. Harrumphing their way through the morass of the world.
Some day, I wish to work for a designer, and have them pay me every two weeks for me to give them my opinion.
I imagine that their highly profitable website will look something like this, and that we'll all have 9 weeks of vacation and have to work about 3 hours per day.
Pleasant, isn't it?
p.s. I dedicate this post to my favorite designer/developer, Greg Bowers, and the last month+ of his blog posts :-) He truly is talented. Just delusional, like the rest of us.
