Alex King is interviewed in this podcast about WordPress (Alex was an original contributing developer and a prolific creator of WP plug-ins), his custom development company Crowd Favorite and his latest project MyFreeBusy.com. I love MyFreeBusy – it allows me to simply and privately share my schedule. I’ve been a beta tester since day one and was one of the folks who pushed him to build it based on my own selfish needs. Alex makes some compelling points in the podcast about not over-solving the problem. Alex also talks about the creation of the web standard Share This icon, and how ShareThis.com is now taking this forward.
We’re lucky to have Alex out here in Colorado. He’s innovative, helpful, straightforward, and just an all around nice guy. Thanks Alex!
