Episode 387: Write The Code And Ship It

Daniel talks to Manton about his decision to open source some Mac software, and making a conscious choice to publish it under the Red Sweater name. They talk about the balance of promoting oneself vs. promoting one’s company brand. Manton talks about two new features he’s added to Micro.blog, and they discuss the fact that the size and impact of features are often unrelated to the amount of time and effort that goes into them.
