    Are you really into business and startups? All this bash off Facebook monetizing is a bit ridiculous. Also the sponsored posts are marked and have been. Then the twitter bashing. Of course they are going to kick out anyone they think is/will/might compete with them. WTF would you do? Also anyone dumb enough to build a business (or a core business function) on a 3rd party API — deserves what happens. Love that both services are the #1 and #2 buttons on your site. Good interview Dalton.

    Is it awkward that there’s a mention of Dalton’s twitter profile but nothing of his app.net one?

    I must agree, its been so inspiring to watch your shows. I just discovered them, and have been watching and or listening when I have the time. I always walk away from these even more inspired to do my own thing.
