Re: INTERN: self taught java/iPhone coder and self taught web coder for CUTLASS

in agreement with all three, tymm mitch and andy.

I think mitch’s catch of the ‘self taught’ is the most revealing,
since that might be an implicit reveal that he’s aware of the low
ball. however, I will say this. there is more than one path to
creative compensation for a project that is relevant and interesting.
Depending on Steve Bull’s experience with software marketing and
development, you could ask for gross percentage points after all
development costs have been covered ( movie biz style). You could
require your name to be listed on the app page in the iphone store.
You could ask him to explore his contact list vigorously and reccomend
you wholeheartedly to his colleagues upon delivery of promised

point being, low compensation for an interesting job in a reasonable
business environment (read non greedy nor short sighted) is just a
starting point for a good healthy negotiation that’ll make everyone
