Episode 270: Life Is My Office

Manton and Daniel talk about MarsEdit’s selection by The Sweet Setup as the “Best Mac WordPress Client,” and reflect on the psychological boost of having one’s work appreciated. They talk about the potential upside to Mac development and the privilege of having a head-start as long-time Mac programmers. Finally they discuss rumors of Apple’s “Spaceship” office building and what the office layout is rumored to be.
