Be Good Not Bad by Brian Warren

An entire site based on spec work. They say they’re “[c]onnecting image makers with buyers.” But what they’re really doing is creating micro-contests where a bunch of people do a bunch of work and a select few get paid for it. Awesome! Anything that tries to recruit people by using the words “make a name for yourself” makes me irky. There are plenty of ways to make a name for yourself without devaluing an industry at the same time. My advice: Run away.
