Sebastian Marshall just posted an interview with me.  
Whoah. That was quick. I expected it'd be a little longer before he got it happening :-)

Building Ruby Castles in the Clouds.

I think it came out really well!

If you know any programmery types, please forward -- we're trying to get publicity for Sebastian's GiveGetWin.com, a sort of daily deals site, but donating to charity. He has some heavily-discounted copies of my book to give away -- fifteen dollars instead of forty.

Your timing is amazing.

Tomorrow, I'm giving a talk at a conference titled "an engineer's guide to listening to users". If you have no objections, I'd like to use a quote from here as part of my intro:

You talk to the people will use your software over and over again until you've got a sinking pit in your stomach of 'I'd love to work on this artistic coding project and it'd be beautiful and a work of art, but if I did this simple thing that takes one day, the users would like it more than if I did this beautiful genius thing that takes three months.”

I'll attribute it to you, and I'll plug both your book and GGW at the end. Is that okay with you?

That would be wonderful. Please do!

Can I make the small request that you correct Sebastian's grammatical weirdness? I love the guy but he leaves out words. :)

Already done. :)
