Metabloging, Things, Thoughts

ropox: Ok this is interesting for people in our business, but how true is it ? read below from ajaxian..

Matt Everson built a simple little micro app for project estimation: Web Development Project Estimator:

Although most web designers have an idea of how long a project will take based on their past experience, far too often this guess becomes a final estimate. If you’ve ever been 300+ hours into a project that’s paying you for 100, I’m sure you know first hand why this can be a serious problem for a business. Up until now, I’ve used an excel spreadsheet to help me estimate accurately. About a month ago though, it occurred to me that I could make this calculator into a sweet little online tool. I figured it can only lead to more accurate estimates, stronger web businesses, and a better valuation of what we do as designers.

Of course, the fun is tracking how close you come to the estimator 🙂
