Building good, interactive, and compelling web sites requires the capability to cut code, architect systems, and understand how disparate systems interact.

Tony Markatos responds:

Yes, but these are not the main thing that needs to be done. In any communications project - paper-based or web - the main thing that needs to be done is to obtain a rigorous understanding of the end-user's goals. Yourdon & Associates state that this is ninty-eight percent (98%) if the REQUIRED work.

Andrew Plato said:

Thus, many companies use programmers and true web developers to build their sites and enlist tech writers to merely produce content.

Tony Markatos responds:

Real men sling code - this is the nerds-eye view of web development. It fails to consider the main thing that needs to be done in any tech comm project (see above).

Andrew Plato said:

Graphics, layout, interactivity, and branding are equally if not more important than the writen words.

Tony Markatos responds:

Here I agree with you 100%.
