On the podcast for the last few months we have been talking about focussing more on business and less on tech. On the whole the response to this has been really positive, however there have also been a significant number of people pleading for things to remain as they are.
After thinking this through I have decided to move the business stuff out into it’s own podcast and leave the iDeveloper Podcast as it is.
However as I am now producing two podcasts and my current passion is to see indie’s become better business owners I am making it known that the iDeveloper Podcast will, at least for the time being, be operating on an intermittent schedule rather than it’s current weekly(ish) one.
Doing things this way will allow me to still look at things outside of business that interest me or are currently causing a stir without upsetting the people looking for business stuff. As we say about software so often it’s about doing one thing and doing it well.
So my new Software Indie Blog and Podcast will cover business, marketing and productivity while the iDeveloper Podcast will cover technology. Please head over the http://softwareindie.com and check the new stuff out as it begins to develop.
