22:12.25wpsyou think he'll be interested?
22:13.03feutetejsdpossibly....he has a lot of experience in design, although it's more in print than interactive/web
22:13.23wpsthat's fine
22:13.58wpsif he has the skills then web specifics can be taught
22:14.16feutetejsdhe is actually learning a bit about the web already...slowly but surely
