Random Bits
Episode 15 – 01/28/2008
Guest: Jonathan Snook, Snook.ca
Background: Internet Entrepreneur, Developer, Ninja level 5
Total Time: 24 minutes

I was pretty stoked to get to talk to Jonathan Snook this week. Jonathan is author of Accelerated DOM Scripting with Ajax, APIs, and Libraries, and The Art and Science of CSS books. He also publishes columns for Digital Web Magazine, Sitepoint and of course his blog Snook.ca. You can see him this week speaking at Web Directions North on Ajax frameworks.

Once Jonathan and I got talking, it took a lot to get us to shut up so on the negative side, the talk will be split into two, but on the plus side, it was a great conversation. Part 1 is a more technical talk whereas part 2 we talk about the business side of freelancing.

Have a listen and as always, I appreciate your thoughts.

Podcast Highlights

  • 00:12 – Has Jonathan always been involved in Web Development?
  • 2:42 – We talk Snitter and working with the Twitter API
  • 12:22 – Find out what his thoughts are on Adobe AIR?
  • 14:57 – Can people who consider themselves more server-side developers tackle Ajax?
  • 21:25 – Which JavaScript framework/libraries does he use?

Well, that happened here. After much editing, the talk is still a solid 45 minutes — there’s just too much good information for any person looking to do commerce online that I had to include.

Random Bits
Episode 13 – 12/17/2007
Guest: Garrett Camp, StumbleUpon Founder and Architect
Background: StumbleUpon Founder
Total Time: 35 minutes

I was really excited for this talk as I am a big SU user (see my profile) and think the service is really cool in general. Our chat reveals some interesting information for both web developers (think API) and webmasters (increased traffic opportunities). After plenty of begging on my part and because I let Garrett win a match of arm wrestling, he was gracious enough to join me for a conversation. The sound quality on Garrett’s end is not the best at times, but I cleaned it up the best I could. If there are any whiz audio editors who want to give a shot at making it better, let me know!

This episode with Matt is a great one whether you are a developer, blogger, or both! But before I get started, let me first apologize for the break in episodes. We had some technical difficulties and one of our interviews didn’t record…twice! Yes, that’s right. Neil Patel talked to me on two separate occasions, and BOTH conversations failed to record. They were great talks so I hope that one day, I have the nerve to ask Neil to do it again!!

Back to my talk with Matt. I got to talk to him after some pretty big events: Blog World Expo, the announcement of the WordPress Theme MarketPlace, and the infamous PR update. Matt also tells us about the future of WordPress! This conversation really does speak for itself; have a listen now!

  • 2:18 – We talk about the Theme MarketPlace.
  • 10:09 – Could there be a plugin marketplace?
  • 11:39 – Something close to Matt’s heart–Open Source software.
  • 13:29 – How much thought goes into the User Experience Design?
  • 15:30 – If Matt couldn’t use WordPress, what would he use?
  • 16:30 – Will there be any default plugins in the next release?
  • 19:25 – Is WordPress becoming more cache friendly?
  • 20:41 – bbPress anyone?
  • 23:35 – When will we see 2.4?
  • 24:15 – WordPress as a CMS…
  • 25:35 – Getting personal, we learn of mistakes Matt has made along the way.
