[webproducers] Re: What's in a name... Producer - Project Manager

in both positions. Web Producer = plays a dual-role as a front-end  
coder and a project manager. Interactive Project Manager = manages  
Interactive Projects and doesn't code, but has a working knowledge of  
technologies used in building Interactive projects. Thoughts? Slams?  
Rants? Raves?
