    @mgrimes I’m not shouting the praises of Twitter, but I’m more pragmatic about using my limited posting time (and not as principled as @manton 😝) and know I’ll be hitting more friends there than here. // @akulbe @jiva @pbur

      @akulbe And I’m still rockin’ an iPhone 4S, so don’t feel jealous of me. ;) // @jiva @pbur

        @mgrimes Same here. I check Twitter once in a while, but rarely hit the other social networks. Relocation plus the new job have kept me quite busy. // @akulbe @jiva @pbur

          We posted our July 4th podcast last night, with the full episode on Apple and the balance with indie developers, sparked by @kevinhoctor’s move to Apple. http://coreint.org/144

            @bazcurtis Thanks. That's great to hear about SF. We have other friends who rave about it too. We want to live in a walking city for a while after years of having to drive everywhere in Houston.

              @kalperin hah. I start on 7/21 and Judy comes along when we get the house sold. I love that you have a 10 year vision. ;)

                @bagelturf I can't tell who's been (or is) inside and who has not. ;) I know the rent is high, but so is our current mortgage. We'll see how it looks. As long as I'm not driving, I can do a commute. // @cheesemaker @manton

                  @bagelturf Have you done the Apple shuttle from SF? I have Apple friends who do it. Plus Judy and I were looking for a walking city. // @manton @cheesemaker

                    @cheesemaker Thanks. Yes, the job is in Cupertino. We are looking at SF first and then other options. // @manton

                      @thaddeus Yes, I can't let MoneyWell die. It's too important to too many of us.

                        @mgrimes Thanks. I'll do my best to help the team. :)

                          @mgrimes It's hard because you have to be so careful what you say. It's just easier to keep quiet and make great software.

                            @mgrimes There's no negotiation. I can own, but not ship feature releases of my apps. That's why I want to find them a new home ASAP.

                              @sulgi Thanks! Lots of Apple folk have been very welcoming to me. :)

                                @mgrimes I didn't take the Apple job to leave the indie world, it just was an opportunity that was put before me and I felt I had to take it. I'm working to find a great home for my apps, where they can grow and thrive.

                                  @invalidname @redqueencoder If you watch the trends, many Apple people have left to go back into the indie world. Think of it more as an eco-system and not a black hole.
