“And the best answer we could come up with was, let’s make the damn thing free, and get some VC somewhere to pay for it.”

Announcing the Stack Overflow Series A financing

Kathy Sierra’s talk at the Business of Software 2009 10 May

I’m a long-time Kathy Sierra fan. Her talk at the Business of Software 2009 was amazing, even though, in retrospect, I realize now that she had a slide making fun of Stack Overflow’s terrific new VC-backed business model. She even got the unicorn!

Watch the  whole talk here. The next Business of Software conference will be in Boston, October 4th-6th.

FogBugz 7.3 is a pretty huge release, despite the modest version number. It has a bunch of features that almost everyone will find useful on a daily basis.

  • The Case Event Edit Plugin now lets you edit cases (instead of just appending to them).
  • Bulk Reply, so you can respond to multiple emails with the same response. You can even flip through the outgoing responses and customize each one if you want.
  • Width of the case area is now resizable.
  • We now support IMAP (in addition to POP3) for incoming email
  • Project backlog editing (for scrum/agile shops) is now much faster.

What’s new in FogBugz 7.3?
