Dan and Matt discuss the MetaFilter community, controlling a website’s growth, starting up a business without taking investment, the recent PVRblog sale, the personal life (or lack thereof) of a developer and community builder, blogging about your personal life, and more.
This interview was recorded the week after Google announced the death of beloved feed parsing app, Google Reader. The headlines regarding Reader’s demise have been predictably and wonderfully hyperbolic.
Elena Bulygina and Anton Tolchanov, two of the three co-founders of The Old Reader, help us make sense of a post-Google Reader world.
Props to @ChazFrench for his help in understanding the true power of the old Google reader.
