    As I mentioned in my 2010 End of Year post, it’s been a crazy year for Outer Level. Adding two new products (Knapsack and LicenseKeeper for iPhone) and jumping in to Apple’s new Mac App Store has kept me really busy. So busy that I’ve been struggling to get everything done that I need to.…

    My friend, Chris Liscio of SuperMegaUltraGroovy has finally joined the ranks of Mac indie developer-dom.

  • Story of Stuff

    I typically reserve my political feelings for my private life. But, this short video on The Story of Stuff makes a very powerful statement. It doesn’t matter whether you lean right or left; or what country you live in. There are steps you can take every day to improve the world we live in.
