Cheaper Than Golf
It seems that every Web site has an "about this site" statement that informs visitors the purpose of the site. This site does not really have an "about" but rather a "why" statement. Why does this site exist? Not for some grand purpose, but rather to learn about web development and say "I can do this." Also, it gives me something to do that is cheaper than golf.
The one thing all these technologies have in common is that they are all free to install, use and learn. The last time I overheard the price of green fees leads me to say that it is a cheaper hobby than golf. OK, computer hardware does cost, but the prices of PC components are much cheaper that in the past and some of the components I use are hand-me-down components. It does not take as much power to run Linux than it does M$ Windows. Even with the price of hardware, web developing is still cheaper than golf.
