Really fascinating how this whole thread starts out implicitly dealing with
how to defend the interests of website application developers, and ends up
identifying with how best to help the employers commoditize our services.
For Kieran Lal, who is a great guy and a selfless Drupal activist, the
answer, however, for the audience he is tuned towards is the hideously
exploitative odesk (who control your screen while you work) which is "a
great place to find certified and experienced Drupal talent." As I recall
the Drupal Association had something to do with their "certification"

http://www.odesk.com/users/?q=drupal  shows people offering Drupal services
for USD $15 / hour.

Couldn't find Kieran's article on the Drupal Association site anymore, but
Google cache has it:

No, not a certification program. We need a union.
