Bike rides are for thinking
By Dave Winer on Friday, June 03, 2011 at 4:58 PM.

Today's ride was windy, on the way up -- and on the way back -- it was like flying. Or sailing. #

I was thinking about software. My friend Brent Simmons just sold one of his products, NetNewsWire.  #

I thought about the team that's assembling around Blork, and where it's heading (interesting places). #

I thought about how some people, when they think of tech, think of money. I've never thought of it that way.  #

I discovered that I loved to play with computers at a relatively early age. And since then, I've always thought it was a priviledge that I could pay for groceries and rent and health insurance by doing something that I would do for free, happily. :-) #

I think Brent is the same way. That's why we were so productive when we worked together in the 90s. #

Adam likes to make money, he''s good at it. He and Dvorak have this idea that we should sell licenses for podcasting. I don't think they're kidding. But Adam has an intuition about tech that agrees with mine, and we work well together too. We've now been collaborating again for a half-year. It's good. And maybe this time we'll make some money together.  #

Anyway, it was very windy today. So I got a great workout. Here's a video. #


And the map. 9.94 miles. 1 hour 6 minutes. #
