Daring Fireball’s John Gruber: “I’m a writer first and a businessman second”

Daring Fireball founder and sole employee John Gruber talks with Recode’s Peter Kafka about running a one-man media company. Gruber has been writing about Apple since 2002 but he estimates that his podcast — which started in 2013 — now represents half of Daring Fireball’s revenue. He explains how he got into writing in the early days of web blogging and why he has opted to monetize his site by having only one sponsor per week. Gruber also chats about Steve Jobs’s legacy, why he doesn’t love the Apple Watch and the alleged influence of Apple’s corporate team on his writing.
