Elance.com is dead. Good riddance.

In episode 31 of Saturday Show Podcast, Frank discusses the untimely demise of elance.com as a viable marketplace to find freelance workers of all kinds. Frank presents a clear and concise argument which leads one to conclude that this company will be bankrupt within 5 years time. Also, Frank discusses the clever discursiveness of Vladimir Nabokov and a 5-word sentence that says it all. Plus, literary fiction techniques galore!
