  1. Rework 03 - Pick A Fight (on Twitter)

    Basecamp CTO David Heinemeier Hansson is known for many things, including creating Ruby on Rails and writing business books. He also has a knack for arguing with people on the Internet. This cheerfully profane conversation explores how Twitter is like a virtual pillow to scream into and the role that extreme voices play in moving important conversations forward. We also relive some of David’s memorable Twitter melees, including the one that got him blocked by Paul Graham.

  2. Rework 02 - Workaholics Aren’t Heroes

    Being tired isn’t a badge of honor. There, we said it. We’ve been saying this for a while now, because our culture loves to glorify toiling long hours for its own sake and we think that leads to subpar work and general misery. In this episode, we talk to a veteran of the video game industry and a member of Basecamp’s customer support team about workaholism and burnout. We also hear from a new business owner who’s balancing mindfulness with the demands of starting her own meditation-focused company.

  3. Rework 01 - Sell Your By-products

    Welcome to the first episode of Rework! This podcast is based on Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson’s 2010 best-selling business book, which was itself based on years of blogging. So what better way to kick off this show than talking about byproducts? In this episode, Jason explains how Basecamp’s ideas have been packaged as blog posts, workshops, and books. We also visit a 145-year-old sawmill in Ontario, Canada to see how this family-owned business sells its physical byproducts.

  8. Art Works Podcast: John Maeda « Art Works

    This week’s podcast is an interview with the president of the Rhode Island School of Design, John Maeda. Maeda has spent his career at the crossroads of art and technology, where he has consistently pushed the boundaries of each field to explore how these disciplines shape one another. In the late 1980s, after earning degrees in software engineering and physics at MIT, Maeda, on the advice of a professor who had noticed his talent, went off to study art in Japan. At first, he was happy to leave computers behind, but slowly he discovered that art and science were more connected than he had previously imagined.
