Daniel Jalkut and Manton Reece talk about software that people will buy, advanced planning, and syncing.
On this week’s episode, Jean chats with Daniel Jalkut, the developer of MarsEdit, the blogging editor for Mac. As co-host with Manton on the Core Intuition podcast for 10 years (🎉), Daniel has had a front-row seat at Micro.blog’s inception and evolution. We examine the multifaceted nature of Micro.blog, its dual nature as a business and a mission, and how we are still figuring where to put our social media energies.
Manton and Daniel chat about Apple’s 1.0.1 Watch software update, the potential benefits of Siri with contextual knowledge of your activity, and Apple’s respectful collection of personal data.

Today we reflect on the state of being indie, particularly in light of the discussion that we had last week with Jared Sinclair. We start, as every good argument should, by defining our terms and taking a look at what exactly we mean when we call someone “indie.” The conversation then turns to setting reasonable expectations for success, the non-financial benefits of being self-employed, and optimizing your life for freedom. We discuss the role of market and marketing in promoting App Store success, then close with our view of the App Store developer ecosystem and ways that new indies can give themselves the best shot of making it.
