This week Myke is joined by Marco Arment. They discuss how the sales of Instapaper, The Magazine and Tumblr are affecting his current decisions and how WWDC has helped shape his next project.
This week, we talk with Marco Arment about how he got started, getting the job at Tubmlr, Instapaper, The Magazine, and the future
This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
There is no hacker word of the week this week.
The feature this week is an interview with Bruce Schneier. The catalyst for this conversation is a post on his blog that frames out some of the themes he has been considering for his next book. Among other things, we refer to Rebecca Mackinnon’s book and Kevin Kelly’s most recent book in the course of the conversation. You can find all of Bruce’s books, here.
Jason Snell, Dan Moren, Serenity Caldwell, and Lex Friedman join us for the second attempt to try out the Clockwise Podcast format. Topics: PRISM, home audio, fitness wearables, and the ebook trial. Review this on your blog if you like, but please note that until we post this thing on the TechHive web site and on iTunes, it’s just a work in progress. Feedback welcome on Twitter or to jsnell at macworld dot com.
Glenn Fleishman December 31, 2012 at 8:45pm • 1 hour 6 minutes • Wiki Entry We talk about what it takes to be on Jeopardy (and how to win.) We also go on a journey into the lore and charm of The Economist and the curious state of modern journalism.
Special guest Glenn Fleishman.
Marco Arment helped bring Tumblr into existence, founded Instapaper and The Magazine, co-hosted the podcast Build & Analyze, and created the podcasts Neutral and Accidental Tech Podcast with Casey Liss and John Siracusa. He has a lot going on, but less than when we recorded this two-part podcast weeks ago. (This is part 2.)
I didn’t know it at the time, but Marco and I spoke as he was finalizing a deal to sell the majority interest in Instapaper. Go back and listen to Episode #20: So Successful That He Fired Himself (part 1) for how Tumblr and Instapaper grew.
In part 2, we talk about Marco’s podcasts, The Magazine, blogging, advertising, and related topics.
Marco Arment’s career has come in two main acts: as the first employee of Tumblr, he helped create a service that changed the fundamental nature of blogging by introducing both ease of creation and social networking. While there, he toyed with a service, to let him read Web pages offline without formatting, that became Instapaper. In late 2010, he left Tumblr to focus on that service full time. Now Marco is a successful podcaster and the editorial director of The Magazine — the best publication ever created — at which I’m the editor and he’s my boss! (I still have a job after we recorded the podcast.)
Our conversation will be aired in two parts, each about an hour long. In this first part, we talk about how as a Tumblr developer Marco found out he didn’t want to manage people, how Instapaper developed, and issues of managing resources and scaling. In the second, we move further into podcasting, The Magazine, blogging, advertising, and other areas.
Take a bunch of tech geeks who also happen to get their game on, power them up, put them in front of mics, hit the record button, and what do you get? Another impromptu episode of hardest core casual podcast on the system.
Join John Siracusa, Guy English, and Rene Ritchie as they talk all about the just-announced Xbox One, how it compares to the kinda-announced PS4, the perplexing Wii U, and what’s left for Google and Apple in the TV space.
