On this episode, we had four big discussions that I’m proud of:
- Why new generations of consumer electronics catch on (or don’t).
- Code shouldn’t need a lot of comments.
- Why I don’t discount the Instapaper app’s price, and the premium-app role I hope Instapaper can retain if its ever-increasing competition ever dominates it in iOS paid-app sales volume.
- Blog comments are a relic of a time when setting up your own blog was harder. Today, there are other solutions to address the problems that comments solve with fewer downsides.
If you only listen to occasional episodes of my podcast, or if you haven’t heard it yet, I highly recommend this one.
(Also, where’d this awesome timeline wiki come from?)
