Hi! It's been a while. Well to make up for it, we have a great interview with Jeff Atwood! Jeff's contribution to the internet has left quite the footprint. Not only is he the prolific blogger behind the site Coding Horror but also co-founder and creator of StackOverflow and the Stack Exchange suite of Q&A sites.
I mean really, what developer *anywhere* around the world hasn't heard of or hasn't used StackExchange? It's an amazingly well thought out site, the reason it works so well is not by accident, it was painstakingly planned right down to the very last pixel. For insight on how StackOver flow came to be, I highly recommend checking out the StackOverflow/Exchange podcasts.
