Episode 475: What Have We Got Ourselves Into?

Daniel talks to Manton about his last-minute preparations for Micro Camp, and the extent to which he’s had to drop everything to focus on the virtual conference. Daniel describes the process of reacing to the New York Times dropping Across Lite support, and his ultimate delivery of an updated version of Black Ink to work around the change. Finally, they talk about the merit of staying engaged with customers who have made feature requests, even if it was a long time ago.
