The Stack Big Board (with Video!)

Anyone who has seen pictures or video from our office in the last few months has probably noticed a small addition in the form of five large screens mounted in the middle of it.  The screens came about when we were first hiring CHAOS and realized that we wanted an easy way to visualize and…

SE Podcast #30 – Robert Cartaino & Rebecca Chernoff

Guests this week are Robert Cartaino and Rebecca Chernoff. Yeehaw! They’re members of our Community Team. The original Joel on Software forums were sort of a progenitor for Stack Overflow. They had strict rules: nothing off-topic was allowed – and discussing the forums themselves was off-topic. So a Joel on Software Off-Topic discussion group was…

SE Podcast #28 – Brent Ozar

Jeff & Joel are joined this week by Brent Ozar, database wizard who has helped tons of companies (including Stack) with their massive scaling needs. The Spanish site is live!

SE Podcast #27 – Dave Winer

Jeff & Joel are joined today by Dave Winer, who’s upset that we don’t have a jingle to start the show! He “invented” (well, pioneered, really) the XML-RPC protocol. Dave tells us the story of how and why the protocol came to be. Right now, Dave’s working on a “magnificent symphony of software” – it’s the…

SE Podcast #25 – Mark Russinovich

This week’s guest is Mark Russinovich, from SysInternals.com and now with Microsoft. Chatrooms are chaotic! Jeff mentions that lots of spaces need editorial oversight. A lot of good information is available, but it’s a hard to find it in the disorganizations. It’s a chronic problem. Mark and Joel talk about his command-line work. Mark had…
