StackOverflow Podcast #19

This week’s StackOverflow Podcast is up: episode 19.

Jeff and I spent some time talking about the home page for StackOverflow. What goes there? What does it mean to vote on a question?

We also talked about Aaron Swartz’s article on How to Launch Software. Big-bang launches can be disasters (viz.: cuil); quiet, gentle launches without announcements where you slowly build can work a lot better (viz.: Gmail). Will StackOverflow’s launch overwhelm our servers and underwhelm our audience?

About the author.

In 2000 I co-founded Fog Creek Software, where we created lots of cool things like the FogBugz bug tracker, Trello, and Glitch. I also worked with Jeff Atwood to create Stack Overflow and served as CEO of Stack Overflow from 2010-2019. Today I serve as the chairman of the board for Stack Overflow, Glitch, and HASH.
