Marco Arment on the Pipeline Podcast

Terrific podcast from the Pipeline interviewing Marco Arment. He's the creator of Tumblr (which hosts the Ben's Friend's Blog) & Instapaper, two of my favorite Internet services. He says some really profound things about commuting and office work and bursts of creativity. He believes they're often at odds with each other and I can relate.

Marco also has some great perspective on product design & simplicity. He said something to the effect of, "I really enjoy a few things, and I try to be a power user in the things I enjoy," which I thought was a great mentality. If there is something you really enjoy, you should evangelize, give feedback and generally make an effort to improve this thing that you enjoy. Pretty neat perspective.
