I know it's an anology, and anologies can be dangerous, but I do find a lot
of parallels in the architecture/construction business and web
design/development business. The benefit is that there tends to be all sorts
of real-world cost issues analyzed in the construction business.

Fine Homebuilding had a nice 'sound-bite' pertaining to the costs of

Accessibility isn't really a hindrance to any project. It's a benefit. You
just need to plan for it. Good business revolve around good planning.
