@panzer I was an early adopter (user ID in the 200's), so didn't really affect my joining. It does, however, affect how often I bother to check my feed. Starting to see great ones for iPhone, reasonable for Mac, but an utter dearth of options for iPad.
@panzer Was always important, but I put my faith in the community to develop the clients in the future and put my money down regardless. Would be interested to know how these responses vary by user ID. You writing a piece?
