Why do we have to fight?

In Why do we have to fight?, Robert Nyman goes on a bit of a rant on decision makers, project managers, and tool manufacturers that prevent web developers from doing things right.

This has been a problem for as long as I have worked in the web industry, but you'd think that with web designers and developers finally starting to improve their ways that management would too. Unfortunately this is rarely the case.

I posted this in a comment on Robert's post:

A theory I have is that many decision makers and project managers in the web industry aren't really all that interested in the web. They just happen to work at a company that creates websites. They could just as well be working in any industry. Making decisions and managing projects is what drives them, not building websites.

I think we'll be fighting for years to come.
