Thoughts on software team status updates

I'm a project manager for a small software group (6 engineers) and I'm considering a different approach to gathering status from the team. I'd like to throw it out to the MeFi community first to see if it seems like something that would be beneficial and fair from the developer's point of view. It's basically a weekly list of tasks that are shared with everyone. Details inside... [more inside]

Examples of artistic development

After comparing the first few strips from Questionable Content to the most recent ones, I'd like to find others examples of dramatic improvements over time in people's drawing/drafting/cartooning/CGI skills. I'm looking for inspiration as well as some insight into how such improvement was achieved in a given case, if possible.

Got Rubrics?

I'm working with a few school start-up teams, and two of them are in search of resources for creating rubrics. I think I've convinced them that the act of creating rubrics is itself very valuable, but they still want to see some additional models before they jump in. Are there books or websites that provide strong sample rubrics as well as philosophical and practical guidelines for the creation of rubrics? Thanks--

Is allowing users to submit ads going to be a problem?

[Web dev filter] I work for a small parenting publication that uses advertising on the website. My boss wants me to create an online system where a user can upload an image, choose from a number of different options (length of time the ad will stay up, number of pages on the site it will appear on, etc), then check out using PayPal. Am I crazy to think that there will be many problems down the road with this? [more inside]

How do you actually make money off of web-based software?

I'm a web developer with enough proven abilities to develop good stuff that end users like. I'm employed, but want to start a business with a couple of friends with complementary skill sets in the technical side of things. We'd like to create one or more web-based products used by small-to-mid-size businesses and/or individual consumers, paid for on a monthly basis using a "software as a service" model. We've got more than enough combined development and graphical/UX design abilities, but we have no solid product ideas that we feel confident enough about to start doing the enormous amount of work involved in any of them. The main problem with any idea we get is this question: how on Earth do you convince anybody to pay you money for the product? [more inside]
