Freelance rates

I am not sure where you are located but in US disccusing prices can be
seen as price fixing and can cause a problem if I am not wrong(correct
me someone).

Why do people feel the need to keep saying this? No, talking with
other people, even competitors, about what a fair market price is,
does not constitute price fixing. And when the people in question are
a handful of developers with little experience just trying to research
the market value for their services, thinking it somehow even comes
close to price fixing is crazy.


Plus, you couldn't fix prices like this if you wanted to. It's not
even possible.

DHH could decree from on high an "Official Rails Developer Rate" and
it wouldn't make a damn bit of difference. Ten minutes in an econ
class would explain why.
