A friend of mine who loves woodworking sent me this video. Neat stuff, but I have neither the skill nor the patience to do some of the incredible work I saw here. I am however, a business consultant and senior fellow at a think tank that seeks to destroy the billable hour in professional firms. +VeraSage & Friends 

From what I saw most of the comments support +Drunken Woodworker's view which is absolutely the way to go. You guys are smarter than lawyers and accountants when it comes to pricing. No ONE wants to buy an hour, they want a Will or a Tax Return or a Cutting Board. Billing by the hour is suboptimal. It is a derivative of Marx' Labor Theory of Value. 

Keep up the great work!

This bill will impose an unfair fee on third party and independent candidates. Help us stop it now!
