And yet some economists, like Krugman or Greenspan, are quite prescient with their predictions, and were/are right more often than they were/are wrong about what will happen in the future. It makes more sense to pay attention to someone who has a good track record...Krugman didn't win a Nobel prize because he was lucky or didn't know what the hell he was talking about...

Economists are like poker players. Yes, there's a lot of luck involved and half the time no one knows what they are anyone else are doing, but it IS possible to be a good economist.

"create a mock-up in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, I don't care what you use, but then send that to someone who knows how to code HTML from scratch. "

This right here shows you don't know what you are talking about. You can export your page IN HTML directly from Photoshop. You can save the whole mockup as a web page, which you can immediately open in a browser.

Like the fact that the astronomers in Europe and the U.S might use different measuring systems? Gosh, I must be a schmuck to point out that those scientists with Ph.D.s might want to double check that when sending up a probe or a satellite, because hey, they're pretty smart and I'm an idiot, right?

"Sony Pictures Entertainment will have no choice but to hold you responsible "

They have no choice? As in their hands are legally or physically tied so that they absolutely HAVE to sue you? The people at the top of Sony will have actually no other choice in the world, like, say, going to watch a Knicks game or reading a nice book? They have only one choice, which is to sue?

Bullshit.

I don't understand the hate for this guy.

The above post seems like just a long but reasonable commentary on some recent products. So what?

Is Bennet Haselton hate the new hipster-hate? Are people jumping on the Haselton-hate bandwagon because it's the latest trendy thing to do on ./? I'm not really sure, but it is pretty stupid.
