Horrible.

Getting fools who should know better to work for free.

Fact...The knowledge people are using to do these "missions" have real world, real debt causing price tags.

The free work will be used for monetary profit but the fools who did it will just get...coffee.

Wake up people.

I benefit reading this article. I demand to learn more on this topic

I'll code for food. Hell, feed me, pay my mortgage and utilities, and give me a little spending money now and then, and I'll give you a LOT of code. In point of fact, that's pretty much what I'm doing in my current dead-end job.

Without a graduate degree, without being a central-casting stereotype of a whitebread IT geek, without an H-1B visa and Indian surname, that's about the best you can hope for these days.

If Philip has a better offer, I'm all ears. I'll consider any framework that focuses on what I can deliver rather than my papers or my looks.

If I had to live in San Francisco... ah, if only that were possible. That would be yummy frosting on the cake.

So Phil is willing to do CEO work in exchange for a lunch? He's down to "will work for food"? That's sad.

I played with the app for a bit yesterday. I think it's a really fun idea for places like SF and NYC. I really do want Philip to teach me how to arc weld.

Don't know how it would work beyond major metropolitan centers.

How would it work beyond major metro areas? Hmmm... well, I know of this virtual world where your physical location is immaterial....

Looked at this today, nice concept and I'm surprised they haven't developed an SL version.
