I have a web development project that I am looking to #comission a developer for.

It's something I've had planned out for months, but I can't get it done at the speed that I want, and I'd rather pay someone to do it than struggle to fit it in to my schedule.

So if you're a #developer doing #web stuff, check this thread for details on the project, and get in touch with me inf you're interested in taking it on.

I might reach out to a few people directly, too.

"A Better Way to Revive America’s Rust Belt"

contains the quote:

> "The election of Donald Trump was a startling wake-up call: Even though identity issues were a bigger factor explaining why Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin flipped to Trump in 2016, the long-term economic decline of the Rust Belt probably contributed substantially to an overall climate of discontent."

Thanks, Sherlock. You probably should have just talked to someone with family back there.
