I think web development suffers from a larger number of relevant people 
asking for features who don't understand programming.

For example i launch a full platform game and the community says we want 
lasers. I create laser and users say "yay pew pew".

I build a website for a domestic made car dealer. The site owner says i 
want the site to find buyers for my cars. I build a spider to surf blogs 
for people complaining about their car and instead of "yay" i get WTF 
(what the function) did you build that for? I can't afford that. You 
were supposed to go to the mythical repository that exists in the cloud 
that reads peoples minds. Look it's right here on facebook. <Hands over 
link for mazda.com>.
