Is It practical to play Manager on a small software project?

I Know some C++ and Python, but I don't know enough about algorithms to really implement the project, a fairly simple web app, I have in mind. So I'm wondering if it's possible to divide the problem up appropriately, write good app specs, then use Rent a Coder or a similar service for the hard stuff.

Also, I think some parts would need to be written in Java, which I know nothing about. There's some complex computational programming problems involved, too, like a big nonlinear programming problem.
Do you think that's practical, though? Obviously, I haven't tried anything like it before, preferring to learn whatever I need to know how to do.
Has anyone else tried something like this?
