A wonderful blog interview with Brent and Sheila Simmons, makers of NetNewsWire and MarsEdit, and all around great folks, summarizes much of what Troy and I like about our home-based business making software. They are asked, like we always are, how can you possibly be around each other 24/7 and work together too. I just loved the way Brent answers:
We laugh at the same stuff and enjoy so many of the same things. We like being able to do things like take a walk around the neighborhood after lunch. We like being able to play with the cat [dogs in our case] whenever he wants.
It’s a little bit like farm life — but modern, urban, digital farm life. We grow software.
