For a variety of reasons, I've never really paid much attention to Yahoo's directory listings for "web site designers". Today, I did. Are the directory listings entirely by region (in the case of the US, by state- for the rest of the world, by country) or do I need two more cups of coffee and some Jolt- am I missing something? No nation-wide listing? So, someone in Philadelphia would probably start in the PA listing and may never see a NJ web site designer
It seems to me -- and always has -- that categorizing web designers by region is a strange way to do it.
The whole point of the Internet is to globalize, and one would think that web designers, as a whole, would likely do business with clients around the world. I know that's how it was for me when design was my main business.
