This site seems to offer a market for software coders and buyers to trade. People who want something done put up a bid request. And I assume they hire the lowest bidder to do the job. That sounds like a great idea. But, looking over the bids, it all looks impossibly low. Like, $10 for solving some problem, or $100 for a redesign of some website. And I see people asking for an airline reservation system that needs to be done the day after tomorrow. I wonder if it works. Maybe it is only school kids who bid, who're thrilled about $100 even if it takes a week to do. Maybe it is people in developing countries doing the work, in which case I think it is great. Doesn't look like I'll find much that will supplement my living in there, though. Maybe I should just put in bid requests for all the work I have to do this month and put the cap at $200, and take the month off myself.
