Episode Summary

“When you look at a problem, you got to look at the process. Its not always a technical problem you’re solving. What are the human elements in a problem that are driving a certain outcome?”

“I’ve always followed tension between an open internet and regulations. I find that a lot of times I go back to ‘where does it balance out in the constitution?’.”

“A lot of the elements and methodologies that are now mainstream in software development had borrowed heavily from that background that earlier business people had drawn upon.”

—John Carnell
