The old law was rescinded right after being passed so at present Amazon still allows affiliates in Hawaii...  however there is a new bill SB1355 working it's way through that could (depending on the final language) cause problems for affiliates in HI.

This is the third bill that has attempted to impose an affiliate tax. No matter how many times we raise awareness of this terrible idea and kill the offending bill, it just won't die. Clearly we need new politicians.

@Marcus: Hey Marcus, ya I'm kinda bum about it.  But not only Amazon, from what I heard some of the big online retailers have pulled out from states like Calif, Hawaii that have similar online taxes.

 

Sure would like to hear from the rest of you folks....

@Fred: I had read about the "Amazon tax" in California, I hadn't realized that Hawaii had already signed on to do that.  Too bad, I was thinking of embedding Amazon affiliate links for one of my future websites.

 

Can any Amazon affiliates in Hawaii comment on how the tax affected them?

Guys I'm a little behind the times but saw a news report about Calif. Gov signing online tax bill.  What's the scoop on making money through affiliate marketing in Hawaii?

I think as developers, people come to us with a list of their needs and desires for how the website will function, and we have to be understanding enough to figure out if a particular solution will "fit" for them.

 

I've developed on both, and I do think that Wordpress is excellent for blogging and for sites where the realm of participation is mostly user-generated posts and pages... but for anything where we get into workflows, permissioning, multiple user roles...  we still have to implement Drupal... it's really the developer's call. Ideally we have some sort of checklist that lays out which to use in which scenario.

 

I haven't used Joomla in about two years, and would be curious how people are implementing that, too.

I have to agree. :)

My largest WP site contains 1.3 Million records/"posts" (93 million cells) and still has an average page load time of less than .1 seconds (while not cached).  It has scaled beyond my wildest expectations. 

I will say though, I'm very impressed with the new Drupal 7 code base.  SQLite is supported now, and its production performance for your 'average' Drupal site is quite impressive!

Just finished my 3rd WordPress website.  So... no matter what people say about wordpress... I find it easy to install, use and expand on.   Great set it and forget it type of system.
