Gus Mueller, an author of a few simple Mac apps (VoodooPad and FlySketch) wrote an article on How to become an independent programmer in just 1068 days. Interesting if you’re into those kinds of stories.
They confuse me, though. The stories, I mean. His lesson #1 is “Think small and make sure you really like what you are doing”. I can bet that I’ve read someone else’s lessons that claim exactly the opposite: that you should aim high.
In the meantime, writely.com becomes worse and worse, instead of better and better. When writing this post I got into state where every new text was a hyperlink and I just couldn’t tell writely otherwise. It acquired definitely weird and obvious strange behaviours. Few days ago I tried to blockquote some text in a document created in the past but writely kept ignored me. Looks like they should spend more time QA’ing the editor as all those changes are regressions from previously fine behaviour.
