Developers with weblogs
For the upcoming NetNewsWire Pro release I made a change to the default list of 15 subscriptions that new users get: I added Dave Hyatt’s Surfin’ Safari weblog.
My hope is that new users will see that there’s a weblog by one of the Safari developers, and they’ll think that’s pretty cool, and they’ll wonder if other developers of their favorite software have weblogs.
It’s a great thing—at least I think so—when developers have a human presence on the web. I myself am a developer—but I’m also a user of software, just like everybody else.
(Of course every developer is also a user of other software.)
