Interview with Nick Longo - What do you want to hear about?
« on: September 17, 2007, 09:35:20 AM »
Hello All,

I've scheduled an interview with Nick Longo for the .NET Preacher Show. You might know him as the former CEO of CoffeeCup software. He recently sold CC to Hans Top - the fellow behind a little piece of software that you might just have heard of, WinZip. :)

Anyways, Nick is fairly well known and is pretty open, so I'm taking questions and topics from people on what you'd like to hear about. (He used to be quite active in the ASP newsgroups helping people out.)

Please keep in mind that it's a mISV centered show and so questions and topics need to reflect that. I've started to aggregate some of what people are interested in in the .NET Preacher forums here.

You can post here where I'll be checking back or post in the DNP forums at the link above.

So, here's your chance to pick the brain of one of the more successful guys in the software industry! :)

some questions that come to mind:

1) how does he feel about the trends in web apps vs local pc apps? ie are all local pc apps going to be a think of the past, etc.
2) where would he rank things like marketing, seo, and program quality in terms of importance to success of a microisv.

Thanks for those mouser! I updated the list with them this morning.

If anyone else has questions - now's the time to ask! Nick's been around long enough to have more than just a couple golden tidbits. :)
