Luckily, in 20 years I've also learned that whenever I think there's stupidity around, I only need to check the mirror to find the source. Works every time.

For Pushing7, it's all about knowing that we're building sites on a flexible platform that can evolve in virtually any direction. What this means for our clients is is that when we're presented with questions about whether we can add a feature or display content in a specific way, we can answer the question with a resounding "yes!"
