Maybe simply because the web and our industry is still so young. It's a new
medium which requires a new skill set. Fundamentally, I don't think we're
doing anything wildly different from any other professional. However, I do
think that very creative people often have trouble with boundaries and

I used to fight estimating and timecharts and deadlines until I really got
some professional experience. Now, as loathe as I am to admit this, I really
find value in tracking and charting and keeping on task. That doesn't mean
that I always do it the best that I could but I do try.
