Submission + - Crazy non-compete contracts???

JL-b8 writes: "Dear Slashdot, I've just encountered a (from what I know) strange occurrence. A group of friends who work for a small web design firm are being forced to sign a non-compete agreement with a clause that prohibits the employee from working with a competing company for 12 months after the date of their leaving. Is this a common thing? And what has happened to people who have signed these things? The owners claim it's a standardly practiced clause but I don't see how the hell a web developer/designer is supposed to find work in a city for a year without moving to a completely different city. I'd like more input as to how this weighs in to the rest of the companies out there."

Submission + - Web Design Masters Program?

JL-b8 writes: "I need some advice about getting my masters. I've currently had my bachelors for about 3 years and am currently working at a small chicago based software company writing online furniture applications. The problem lies in that I'm not particulalry interested in writing applications anymore and want to turn towards something more creative. I have a bachelors in arts for multimedia / web design but I haven't seen any schools offering a good mix of both design and development. Can I get some advice as to where I should be looking? It's pretty difficult to see what's reputable with all the spam and advertising."
