“My hope is that giving up blogging and the rest of it will be the
equivalent of making a cross-eyed kid wear an eye patch on his good eye
for a while: The weaker eye will grow stronger. My company needs to get
better at what every other company already knows — how to promote and
market products without depending on one single channel. We’ve
completely saturated a small slice of the target market, and now we
have to go after a much larger group of potential customers.”
–Joel on Software, explaining why he is hanging the blogging hat on teh hook for a while.
