Note: this post was written many months before it was published (creation date is at the start of August 2013). While my feelings have changed over time, this is a timeless viewpoint .
I first started listening to 5by5’s Quit to hear the interview with Marco Arment shortly after the Instapaper sale (episode #21: Quit & Analyze) and I have been listening to the show ever since. While there are parts of the format and personalities in the show that I don’t like, the general message of the show is good. My main gripe is that often the majority of the show is Dan Benjamin going off on a rant. I prefer the episodes where there is more call-in or guest content. Along with events of the last few months, it has got me thinking of the future.
