Bitsplitting With Brent Simmons

Episode 5 of the Bitsplitting Podcast is up, featuring my friend Brent Simmons of NetNewsWire, MarsEdit, and Glassboard fame.

After getting to know Brent a bit online through the developer community, I finally got the chance several years ago to meet him in person at the very first C4 conference. It was only a short time after meeting that he approached me about acquiring MarsEdit. The rest, as they say, is history. I now have the pleasure of seeing Brent once or twice a year. I always have a blast chatting, laughing, and sometimes singing with him.

It was a great time talking with Brent about his upbringing in the greater Philadelphia area, his frustrated attempts to finish college, and the circuitous path that led him to starting his own software company. Thanks for joining me on the show, Brent!
