«Three months ago, our new Marketing VP stormed into his job all full of vim and fire, ready to roll up his sleeves and dig in. He knows marketing, they told us, he knows the market. He knows what he's doing. He's done this before.
I sent him e-mail telling him of the prototype company Web site I'd done, how he was welcome to it. I told him how he could get it completely free, how it would let him jump-start our new marketing campaign, how I thought it was pretty damned good. How, y'know, we're a computer company and the Web is where it's happenin' and we've got all these servers lying around and y'know.
He said that he'd be happy to stop by and see what I'd done, he said that he appreciated the effort. But, he said, he'd already made the decision to go with a professional designer.»
