Wow. It looks like somebody just completed a My First Website tutorial—the index tab is seriously reads ‘Homepage – Understanding’.

There’s no way that a professional PR firm comes up with “Our Voice, Our Hamilton” and a Pinterest account; it’s the equivalent of going to the most expensive restaurant and being served cheez whiz on wonderbread. I’m pretty sure the City of Hamilton just gave 400k to the same guy that I gave a $50 down payment on a rental suite in Montreal that turned out not to exist.

I won’t even begin to explain how cheaply I could’ve trained a handful of unemployed Hamiltonians to build a better, more functional website… what do you think of jobs and skills development for “legacy items”?

There are so many creative and infinitely more useful suggestions in the comments to this article. Idea: save the $400,000 and write a Raise the Hammer article! Or hire a group of real professionals who have at least heard of Candy Chang and her I Wish This Was project, or Jason Roberts’ Build a Better Block project, or has a clue.
